  • Application for starting grants $25,000 for 1 year period

To create a basis for therapeutic solutions and to encourage cooperation between different departments at TAU and affiliated hospitals, a proof-of-concept approach for pre-clinical models should be the basis for the starting applications. The pre-clinical models can be ex-vivo/in-vivo/computational/quantitative and emphasizing the model abilities to develop into interdisciplinary structure under the wider umbrella of the regenerative medicine discipline.


TAU members with laboratories on the TAU Ramat Aviv campus or TAU-affiliated hospitals or HMOs (MD or PhD, on clinical or regular track) are eligible to apply alone or in collaboration with another TAU Faculty member.
Support is approved for the course of 1 year (12 months). A progress report is due at the end of the year.


Starting grants are with an option for extension for next year – At the end of the 1st year, projects will be reviewed to ensure that the objectives of the research program are being met and then grant awardees are eligible to apply for another $25,000 grant and for a $120,000 award if there are sufficient preliminary results.
