Here is some additional *major*

media-outlet NORD Grant publicity,

which might further attract even

more superb and

qualitatively superior POIS

medical researchers!

Everyone: post freely here (and at other threads).

The more we post about our Grant, the more it gets picked up and transmitted by Google's search engines.

Google search result/Listing Example (just today):

It's picked up from the 3rd & 4th paragraph down below.


And this will thus hopefully get into the hands of..."the perfect Dr. POIS". Who in turn will possibly submit a Researcher
(PI -- or -- Principal Investigator) application for the POIS Grant!
 
Let's let the  w o r l d  know that we wish to conquer this ugly, horrible syndrome that we all have.

Let's help NORD find the perfect "Dr. POIS".

On a budget.

We're good at that.

I'm not asking you all to do anything new! You've already done a GREAT job in building this POISCenter Powerhouse. And gone through a lot of pain to get to this place in our "career".

So...just keep up the good work :)

Re: Future Grants/RFP's


Cross-posted from another, older thread


Is there right now a way to donate money for the research ?


On Sep 28, 2016, at 8:26 AM: from NORD:

Hello Demo,

It would be wonderful if we could fund another POIS research grant!  There is a $35,000 minimum for issuing a grant ($30,000 for the grant award, plus a $5,000 administrative fee).

Donations can be made to NORD's POIS research fund by navigating to https://salsa3.salsalabs.com/o/51076/donate_page/research-program and selecting POIS from the research fund drop-down menu.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions!

And from prior page post...


That's great news! 

Do you know if further donations will

still go to this RFP or if they would be in reserve for a

future RFP?


thanks!


Future RFP.

Thanks, ThisType.

Good question!

Just to help adjust expectations...researchers can submit POIS Grant proposals until 11:59 pm ET on June 23, so NORD will not have the application numbers before the end of the business day.

According to the current timeline, the final PI (Primary Investigator) selection for POISCenter -- by NORD -- will be made in December 2017.
