Hello, Everyone!

First, my apologies to you for not being able to provide an update about your research grant until today. NORD has been going through it annual financial audit for the past two weeks, so it's been very difficult to sort out all of our research grant funds in a more timely manner. 

But we did it -- and you men have done splendidly!!! You have officially surpassed the minimum amount to offer for a grant! 

In total, you've raised $34,850.  NORD's administrative fee is $3,500. This leaves you with a $31,350 grant award to offer.   This translates to 90 cents of every dollar going directly to your research.

Your POIS grant will be posted online some time next week (the week of April 1st).  I'll provide the link to it (to the "RFP") in this section of your forum ASAP.

You really, truly did a wonderful job.

Congratulations!!! 

Stef

Do we know how long it will take before they start research, and how long is it estimated that the research will take?

nennex, the RFP should give you a sense of timelines in this process.

Any news on how the POIS research is going with the $30,000 NORD grant? Or any news on when there will be some more news?


hello
demografx
 
When will the [POIS] research [begin with NORD]?

thank you


This December.

I should be getting an update first week in December, maybe not who or what yet, but they are in the final throes of choosing the researcher.

So very soon we should know.

The first real professionally administered and controlled research on POIS.

Whatever the results, it will have to be useful.

I'll let you all know when the news comes out.
daveman

I and my Russian friends will be waiting impatiently

thank you


Thank you, Daveman!

This is a  H I S T O R I C  moment for all POISers!!!

news? :)

It has to be imminent... any day now. They are processing other grants as well, and there are formalities and winners must be confirmed ... all that.

I really hope we hear something before the week is out.

Fingers crossed!

 
WITHOUT RESEARCH THERE WILL BE NO CURE!
Sessions 5 to 9 days, mostly Flu-like, joints, digestion problems, light cognitive.
Niacin has changed my lif though, now 1 day MAX.
Somewhere in this interaction with Niacin is the answer!

"winners must be confirmed" ??
I don't have to have any doubts about our grant being chosen, right?
