The Global Research Office provides an extensive list of external funding opportunities as a resource for the entire Cincinnati Children’s research community. We continually seek new opportunities and present findings to Cincinnati Children’s researchers.

Investigators interested in global research opportunities are encouraged to contact the Global Research Office for consultation before seeking external funding.

Partnership with Israel

Through Cincinnati Children’s Israel partnership, many of our faculty have strong research, clinical, education and technology exchanges with Israel. Many of these collaborations have resulted in significant external grant funding through submission of joint research applications with Israeli collaborators.

One of the external grant opportunities is the U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF), which promotes scientific relations between the U.S. and Israel by supporting collaborative research projects in a wide area of basic and applied scientific fields.

The following is a list of upcoming deadlines for submission to the BSF that you can apply to with your Israeli collaborators. If you are interested in applying but do not have an Israeli collaborator, contact Michelle Kohn at michelle.kohn@cchmc.org who can help identify relevant collaborators through Cincinnati Children's partner institutions in Israel.  

Calls for proposals for the programs below can be found on the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF) website:

  • NSF-BSF program in Cognitive Neuroscience. Deadline for applications by the U.S partner to the NSF is Aug. 15, 2016, and by the Israeli partner to the BSF is Aug. 21, 2016. Call for proposals can be found here.
  • NSF-BSF program in Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Disease (EEID). Deadline for applications by the U.S partner to the NSF is Nov 16, 2016, and by the Israeli partner to the BSF is Nov. 22, 2016. Call for proposals can be found here.
  • NSF-BSF program in Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB). Deadline for applications by the U.S partner to the NSF is Nov. 15, 2016, and by the Israeli partner to the BSF is Nov. 22, 2016. Call for proposals can be found here.

Other Funding Opportunities
