Home Base FY 2024 Innovation Award to Catalyze Military-Connected Research
Home Base is providing catalyst funding to be used towards innovative and novel military-focused research. The purpose of this grant funding is to stimulate the entry of new ideas and exciting approaches to research designed to yield meaningful impact for Veterans, Active-Duty Service Members and Military-Connected Families. Data from catalyst awards can then be used to seek additional, larger-scale funding from other funding entities to conduct additional investigations.
Home Base is specifically interested in advancing one or more of the following areas of clinical or translational research related to invisible wounds such as: PTS and its most common comorbidities including but not limited to depressive, anxiety, and substance use disorders; TBI and its most common comorbidities including but not limited to depressive, anxiety, and sleep disorders; the impact of the invisible wounds on the service member’s or veteran’s family relationships, as well as interventions to improve these relationships; and interventions to improve wellness among service members and veterans, irrespective of specific clinical diagnoses.
