BRF will only accept one Letter of Intent (LOI) per institution.  Please note that a medical school falls under its larger university.

If the LOI receives a favorable review, the PI will be invited to submit a grant application.

The objective of the program is to support projects that may be too innovative and speculative for traditional funding sources but still have a high likelihood of producing important findings.
