NVA Invites Medical Research Proposals

Deadline to Submit Letter of Intent is Tuesday, March 21, 2017
Deadline to Submit Application is Monday, May 1, 2017

The NVA is seeking research proposals on the causes and treatment of vulvodynia. We are especially interested in studies that may shed light on underlying pathophysiological mechanisms.

If you are interested in applying, please send an email to Phyllis Mate (pmate@nva.org) by Tuesday, March 21, 2017 that includes a brief (1-2 paragraph) summary of your proposed study’s design and objectives. Once we have received this information from you, we will email you a full application to complete and submit by Monday, May 1, 2017.

The maximum grant amount is between $25,000 and $30,000 and we require confirmation that all funds will be applied to direct research costs, not institutional costs. If you’ve previously applied and/or received grant support from the NVA, you are still eligible to apply. Summaries of studies that NVA has funded to date can be viewed on NVA’s web site.

We welcome correspondence about potential projects. To discuss your proposal, please contact Phyllis Mate via email (pmate@nva.org).
