Collaborative Projects, funded by the Broad-ISF Partnership, unite scientists from different areas of expertise at the Broad and at Israeli institutions to pursue multi-year, multi-investigator, and multi-institute efforts to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and engage in transformative, novel and groundbreaking projects that may often be high risk but with significant potential for impact.
With this new focus, we aim to increase the impact, power, and scale of high-quality projects that require longer timelines. We also seek to recruit leaders and experts who have the ability to solve complex problems in biomedicine — especially those problems served by the unique talents of Israeli scientists and the unique resources (e.g., EMRs, diverse ethnic backgrounds) in Israel. Additionally, we hope to engage with a broader pool of Israeli talent.
This program will fund at least five three-year projects via two submission cycles, one in the spring of 2018 and one prior to spring 2019.
Information about prior projects, funded during the first phase of the Broad-ISF partnership, is available here.
