The DDIs, launched in 2006, provide a drug screening mechanism for researchers with a concept that may advance therapies for the manifestations of NF. DDI Awards invest relatively small amounts of funding into projects that could provide exponential return in follow-on funding from government and industry sources.
The DDI Award is already a cornerstone for NF researchers. A major strength is the simple application process and fast turnaround. DDI calls only for a 3 page research plan - easy to write and review. There are 2 application deadlines per year; on average, applicants are notified of the review outcome within 6 weeks of this deadline and the funds are given to the applicant immediately on their signing of the CTF Patent Policy.
