Ignite Fast Grant Awards


This is an Open Call for Research Proposals from Investigators working in Indian Universities and Not for Profit Research Institutions to apply for Ignite Life Science Foundation Fast Grant Awards. The Fast Grant Awards are meant to fund new ideas (even if they are unconventional and high-risk) and use the outcomes of the research to triage for a subsequent more substantial round of funding,

They are looking for submissions in the following broad areas of research:

1.Pandemic response

2.Antimicrobial Resistance



The topics are to be interpreted in their broadest sense. They prefer to receive proposals that seek to address a central hypothesis/​question. The hypothesis should be testable using a clearly defined experimental approach within the tenure of the Grant. Proposals will be evaluated for originality and potential for future application to health care problems.
