POIS RFP, 2013
« on: April 03, 2013, 01:51:58 PM »
Hi, Everyone!

We've just posted our 2013 RFPs (Requests for Proposals).  

I want to explain to you all that research RFPs are purposely written in a somewhat brief, broad style -- so as to attract a wide cross-section of specialists and scientists.

Your RFP mentions the more prominent symptoms of POIS, and is also written in a way that will interest researchers from varying fields of medicine. If a particular symptom that some of you are struggling with is not mentioned in the RFP, please don't think that it's not considered important!  

Since we don't know what POIS is, the field is WIDE OPEN!!

I did show the RFP to demografx and Daveman, and both were comfortable with the final version.  They will be compiling some important data in the near future, culled from your posts and surveys, and I'll be forwarding that data to NORD's Medical Advisory Committee (MAC).  This will provide NORD's MAC with information about POIS that cannot be found anywhere but on your forum and the NSF POIS thread. This data will provide more specific information about the symptoms of POIS, how POIS manifests itself, and about some of the treatments that have been found to be helpful to some of you.  

Here's the link to the POIS RFP -- http://www.rarediseases.org/docs/research-grants/POIS.doc.

Here's the link to our RFP page, which shows all of the research grants being offered this year -- http://www.rarediseases.org/medical-professionals/research-grants/rfps

Besides posting this on NORD's website, we'll also be sending many individual emails and e-blasts to researchers who we feel might be good candidates.  You are also free to forward/copy and send the POIS RFP to anyone -- scientist, relative, friend, etc -- to help get word out about your grant.

Congratulations!!

Stef

I sent the links to my endocrinologist and primary care physician, who helped me fight POIS successfully.

The symptoms description part was perfect. It touch all the main point.
Hopefully there some excited scientist willing to work with POIS.

Send it to him!

If it's already been sent, multiple copies can't hurt anything. :)

This is the email I sent to Dr. Waldinger just now:

Hello Dr. Waldinger,

This is concerning POIS. Recently our group has raised enough money to fund a small research study($31,000 seed grant) for POIS through the National Organisation for Rare Disorders(NORD) and I thought it would be a good idea to let you know in case you were interested in applying for the grant. Applications are being accepted now until the submission deadline on May 15, 2013. The detailed information about the research grants being offered this year, including the one for POIS, is on the NORD website on the page titled Requests for Proposals, which is located at this link:

http://www.rarediseases.org/medical-professionals/research-grants/rfps

Here is the direct link to the NORD document that outlines the application procedure and other details: http://www.rarediseases.org/docs/research-grants/POIS.doc

I just realized it's only about a month until the deadline.

Vincent, excellent letter!

Perhaps other members can adapt it to their own passalongs!

Best regards,

Demo
