    The Portes Foundation, in association with The Institute of Medicine of Chicago (IOMC), is soliciting proposals for research projects in health promotion, and disease prevention. Please share this letter with colleagues who may be interested.

    Historically, the Portes Foundation has funded grants in the range of $25,000 to $50,000.  Grants are awarded for one year projects. The principal investigator must be a MD, DO, or PhD, have an appointment at a medical school, other health science schools or colleges, or a medical school affiliated hospital or group practice. 

    We invite proposals that explore research or implementation ideas important in health promotion and disease prevention. These projects may be investigative in etiologic factors, preventive measures, primary and secondary prevention screening, and education. Projects in patient education or health professions education will also be considered. All projects must include a complete and thorough evaluation component.

    All proposals will be peer-reviewed by a scientific committee of The Portes Foundation and the IOMC. The first phase of this process is a Letter of Intent, which should not exceed three pages. It should concisely describe the purpose and rationale of the study, its expected outcome, as well as the basic methods that will be used for evaluating the success of the project.

    The letter of intent must be submitted electronically to
    iomcstaff@iomc.org by July 31, 2019. In September, letter of interest (LOI) submitters will be notified of the initial determination and, if applicable, a complete formal proposal will be requested. Acceptance of the LOI only means that the Portes Foundation and IOMC consider the concept within their mission and are now interested in evaluating a complete proposal.

    Sincerely yours.

     L. J. Sandlow, MD
     Chair, Portes Foundation Grant Committee

    All -- There has been much talk about the need for research to support talk therapy, and also about the need to highlight the research that is already there to support psychoanalysis and other forms of open-ended, relationship-based treatment.  Well, here's the chance to do something about it!  Subscribe to JASPER and do something good for the field, right from the comfort of your armchair!  Here's a blurb about them, posted on behalf of Burt Seitler….

    The Journal for the Advancement of Scientific Psychoanalytic Empirical Research is one-year old. We had a successful birth and we are entering our second year of life. We are grateful for the support of our loyal readership on whom we so heavily depend for our existence—since we do not accept advertisements from Big Pharma, insurance companies, or other sources of undue influence. We are committed to publishing quality research investigations without fear of succumbing to outside pressures to produce results that favor the point of view of any external sponsor. 

    We hope you will continue to support JASPER’s efforts to publish scholarly studies through your renewed subscriptions and/or your own methodical psychoanalytic research investigations.  Subscriptions are $110/year, but for students, the fee is $75.  Sign up at http://www.jasper1.org/subscribe.html, or checks may be mailed to:
