As promoted on February 6 in this blog, the office of Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) has released the next set of specialized funding opportunities.  

On February 21, the RFAs for the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Research Program were released.  The mission of the FY19 TSCRP is to fund exploratory, pioneering, and transformative science that promotes discoveries in TSC, from mechanistic insights to clinical application, by supporting new ideas and investigators for the benefit of Service members, their beneficiaries, and the American public. Within this context, the FY19 TSCRP encourages applications that specifically address the critical needs of the TSC community in one or more of the Focus Areas.

This opportunity includes the following three (3) mechanisms:

Exploration Hypothesis Development Award
Supports the initial exploration of innovative, high-risk, high-gain, and potentially groundbreaking concepts in the TSC research field. 
Pre-Application (Letter of Intent): April 18, 2019
