ACH Foundation Institutional Research Grant Program

The ACH Foundation Institutional Research Grant Program is a competitive program for intramural funding of the research interests of the professional staff at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and investigators primarily based at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. This funding instrument is intended to support pediatric-based research projects, with priority consideration for those projects focused in institutional research priority areas (Cancer/Blood Disorders, Cardiovascular, Asthma & Allergy/Immunology, Obesity, and Neurodevelopment & Neurosciences). This funding mechanism was designed to provide principal investigators with the required data to pursue extramural funding applications. All proposals undergo a scientific review process with criteria that reflects the criteria of the National Institutes of Health. Applications are considered three times yearly. The application submission deadlines are: February 15, June 15 and October 15 of every year. The typical grant will not exceed $100,000 annually, and 1-3 years in length.
