The Edward Mallinckrodt, Jr. Foundation is a private foundation that funds basic biomedical research in St Louis and throughout the United States.

The mission of the Foundation is to support early stage investigators engaged in biomedical research that has the potential to significantly advance the understanding, diagnosis, or treatment of disease.

Investigators should bear in mind that the Board selection process is shepherded by Trustees with a medical, scientific background, but the lay summary is critical to connecting to the lay members of the Board who ultimately have an important role in the final selection of award recipients.

Institutions and their research offices should bear in mind that given the number of applications we receive, that we are very interested in the selection process that results in an investigator’s sponsorship for an EMF grant.  We examine closely the support the institution will provide and the promise the institution sees for their proposed investigators’ submissions.

Proposals must contain an adequately detailed description of the project to be clearly understandable by the scientific members of the Trustees.  They need not be in the detail requested by the NIH for R01 grants and should not exceed five pages in length.  Additional material can be submitted, but the five page application should contain the essential information.  References should also be included to support the proposal.  Note that the five page limit is only for the project description.
