The deadline for sending the letter of intent to christine.rougeau@ifcah.org is the 16 of January 2017.

In 2017 IFCAH (International Fund raising for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia) and ESPE (European society for pediatric endocrinology) launches its seventh call for proposals.

Academic groups working directly or indirectly on CAH are invited to submit a project if the results of theirs studies could help to increase knowledge on physiopathology of the disease or allow a better therapeutic approach.

An important new element this year  is a geographical extension to teams working from all over the world, if at least one of the researchers involved in the project belongs to a European team.

This restriction does not apply to projects on gene or cellular therapies of the disease.

Selection procedures will include 2 steps:

The information given on letter of intent (LOI) will enable the scientific board of IFCAH-ESPE to access the priority of the projects and to determine whether the proposed research merits a full application. Full applications will be requested from selected LOIs and submitted to peer-review.

Final selection will take place after an oral project’s presentation (on site in Paris or through video-conference) to the IFCAH-ESPE scientific board.
