  » Outcome

2008 Call for Project

The Fondation Alliance BioSecure launched April 2008 it’s second call for project.


In line with the mission of the Foundation, priority will be given to projects related to protein misfolding diseases, especially prion diseases; however, projects addressing pathogens other than prions can be considered for funding if relevant to current public health risks.

Following topics will be considered

  • Elucidation of the misfolding process; characterization of the mechanics of the molecular transformation ; elucidation of the relationship of the misfolded protein and its molecular intermediates to the manifestations of disease ;
  • Research, development or validation of methods to detect prions (and other misfolded proteins) in human or animal biological fluids & organs ;
  • Methods to remove or destroy potential contaminants in the production of biological products, or to remove or decontaminate instruments/surfaces (prions and related agents) ;
  • Surveillance and epidemiology of prion diseases.

Time schedule

  • Letters of Intent: Call Closing 15 May 2008
  • Notification of Selected Projects for Full Grant Applications: 15 June 2008
  • Deadline for receipt of Full Grant Applications: 15 July 2008
  • Grants awarded: 9 October 2008 (Prion2008 meeting in Madrid)

Total annual amount of grant money: 450,000 euros.
It is expected that most grants will be 1-year awards, but exceptionally, longer-term grants will be considered.
