This award is designed for individuals in the early stages of their career or those without significant prior research experience who plan to embark on careers in biomedical and/or clinical research in arthritis and rheumatic diseases.

Program Long-Term Success:

The goal of funding at this level is to provide an opportunity for young scientists to embark on focused research and research training that will allow them to be competitive for the next level of career development awards. Through this award, the REF provides a means for ensuring more qualified, highly-trained investigators in the field of rheumatology.

Program Short-Term Success:

This mentored post-doctoral fellowship program provides support for salary as well as research and/or education, costs for the early years of research training in an environment where trainees may interact with established, investigators in a clinical unit involved in the care of rheumatic diseases.

Program Success Monitored by:

The recipient and mentor must provide the Foundation with annual reports on the progress of the research project(s). Each report MUST include a description of the recipient‘s efforts to obtain federal funding, including evidence of a scored application, status on a pending submitted application, or resubmission plan toward a NIH K series award. In addition to the annual progress report, the awardee must provide a final report at the end of the award term noting any unexpended funds and a description of project results and outcomes, such as abstracts, submitted or published articles, other grants obtained, and future career plans. Recipients must devote at least 75% full-time professional effort to research, career development, and other scholarly activities with assurance that no more than 25% full-time professional effort will be spent on clinical and/or teaching activities.

Program Success Examples:

Program: Disease Targeted Research -Rheumatoid Arthritis

Budget:
$30,000,000
Category:
None
Population Served:
Females, all ages or age unspecified
Aging/Elderly/Senior Citizens
Physically Disabled nec

Program Description:

Through a rigorous grant application and peer-review process, the Foundation identifies the projects that are likely to yield the best results. Basic Research Grants - These awards provide support for investigators to conduct exploratory research on new issues or approaches for which there is currently an insufficient theoretical or empirical basis for a competitive Research Project application. In contrast to research projects, research proposed in Innovative Basic Research applications may be formative in nature and need not be designed to produce definitive results. Translational Research Grants will focus on the direct study of patients and patient-derived materials to improve our understanding of RA. Basic research into the mechanisms of disease has accelerated in recent years, but the knowledge gained has been slow to reach the clinic and patient care. Both the translation of basic research knowledge into improved patient care and the translation of clinical insights into hypotheses that can be validated in the laboratory are important to accelerating RA research. Clinical Practice Grants will focus on issues that directly affect the quality of care in clinical practice of rheumatology and patient access. For example, improving our understanding of the health economics and benefits of current therapies will increase appropriate access to novel therapies. In addition, addressing disparities in health care access is necessary to improve the overall health of the population. Finally, finding methods to identify individuals at risk for developing RA will move the treatment of this disease into earlier stages of its development and even allow for the prevention of RA.

Program Long-Term Success:

With a bold vision to capitalize on knowledge gained from recent advances, the Rheumatology Research Foundation convened a group of the world's leading and renowned rheumatologists, and representatives from the National Institutes of Health and Arthritis Foundation for a Scientific Forum to determine key elements in the field of RA research that would generate the most impact. The central conclusion that emerged is that current opportunities now make a cure for RA an achievable goal if we have the resources to accelerate innovative research.

Program Short-Term Success:

Through a rigorous grant application and peer-review process, the REF identifies the scientists and doctors who are most prepared and motivated to work on finding the cure for RA and awards major funds through the Disease Targeted Research program to those deserving researchers at major universities and medical institutions throughout the United States.

Program Success Monitored by:

For its fourth round of grants, the REF plans to maintain its commitment of $6 million per year to fund innovative RA research. Of the $6 million total, approximately $2.4 million will be allocated to fund up to six of the two-year $400,000 investigator-initiated grants, while approximately $3.6 million will be set aside for the three-year $1.2 million multi-disciplinary collaborative grants.

Program Success Examples:

At least one recently discovered gene indicates a predisposition to rheumatic diseases, but additional research is urgently needed to develop screening protocols for RA. Other research areas offering high potential include isolating environmental factors such as smoking which may contribute to RA.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

The crowning achievement of the Rheumatology Research Foundation continues to be the success of the Journey to Cure Campaign: The Campaign to Advance Patient Care and Accelerate Discoveries. In FY 2011-2012, the Foundation raised more than $18 million for the campaign and awarded more than $12 million in grants (funding to begin July 1, 2012). Along with the grant funding, the Foundation also convened several Investigators meetings to serve as a point of collaboration between all of our funded investigators. These meetings provide a forum for all investigators to share their data and collaborate. These activities along with the research funding will continue to foster a solid research environment for those investigating the causes, treatments and cures for Rheumatic Diseases. The Foundation continues to support the future of rheumatology through its CORE Programs of career development, fellowship training support and Clinician Scholar Educators. The budget for these other awards has doubled since 2006.
