Expansion Award 2023 is Now Open

February 6, 2023

The 2023 cycle of the annual Expansion Award is now OPEN! The Expansion Award enables teams to add new single ventriclefocused approaches and directions to their current work by providing a one-time grant of $50,000. We’re seeking proposals that will expand upon the scope, impact, or breadth of currently funded projects (“parent projects”), to either expand existing single ventricle studies through the use of additive technology, approaches, or tools, OR add single ventricle-directed aims to ongoing studies.

Proposed projects must be led by Principal Investigator(s) (PIs) who hold doctoral degrees (e.g., PhD, MD, PsyD, or equivalent) and are listed as a PI on a parent grant funded through Dec 31, 2023. Eligible PIs include both mentored and independent investigators, including professors, instructors, research associates, and postdoctoral or medical fellows. 


Expansion Award History

Since the first Expansion Award cycle in 2021, we have funded 10 projects annually, with work ranging from developing machine learning algorithms to the addition of novel single-cell ‘omics techniques to develop regulatory maps. More information about our previous Expansion Award recipients can be found in our awards database.

Proposals for the 2023 Expansion Award are due by May 4, 2023.
