Share |

ABC feels it is important for scientists, especially early career researchers, to know about the various funding opportunities available to them, particularly from alternate funding resources.

The 21st Century Cures Act included a section that will create a new funding opportunity for research that could create innovative and immediate advances in treatment for a disease or condition. Read about this EUREKA prize program and stay tuned for updates on its implementation.
