Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Career Development Award: The DMDRP Career Development Award (CDA) mechanism is being offered for the first time in FY16. The CDA supports early-career investigators in conducting impactful Duchenne research under the mentorship of an experienced muscular dystrophy researcher as an opportunity to obtain the funding, mentoring, and experience necessary for productive, independent careers at the forefront of Duchenne research. Applicants should also demonstrate that the proposed research has high potential to lead to or make breakthroughs in Duchenne.
Preliminary data are required.
Key elements of this award are as follows:
• Principal Investigator (PI): PIs must be research- or physician-scientists at an early stage of their independent research careers. PIs must be within 5 years after completion of his/her terminal degree (excluding time spent in residency or on family medical leave), and exhibit a strong desire to pursue a career in Duchenne research.
• Mentorship: The Mentor must be an experienced muscular dystrophy researcher as demonstrated by a strong record of funding and publications in muscular dystrophy research. In addition, the Mentor must demonstrate a commitment to developing the PI’s career in Duchenne research.
• Career Development: A Career Development Plan is required and should be prepared with appropriate guidance from the Mentor. A clearly articulated strategy for acquiring the necessary skills, competence, and expertise to establish a career at the forefront of Duchenne research should be included. The plan should outline how the PI will gain experience in Duchenne research. Because career development is the focus of this award, the PI’s institution must demonstrate a commitment to the PI through a minimum of 30% protected time for Duchenne research, though more protected time is highly desirable.
• Impact: Research that has high potential impact to improve the function and quality of life, and to extend the life span of all individuals with Duchenne.
