Working Together to Advance Interstitial Cystitis Research

The Interstitial Cystitis Association is proud to announce its collaboration with the Urology Care Foundation, the official foundation of the American Urological Association. The ICA is funding two new research awards as part of this collaboration:

  • A one-year award for an MD (or equivalent degree) investigator working in basic, clinical, or translational research in interstitial cystitis and,
  • A one-year award for an MD or PhD (or equivalent degrees) investigator focusing on exploration into fundamental causes of interstitial cystitis and treatments useful in broad populations of patients rather than treatments to relieve only a particular symptom set or the treatment/diagnosis of only a subpopulation of patients.

The ICA and Urology Care Foundation invite applicants to submit projects for funding in these areas.


  • Letter Of Intent: August 12, 2015 (recommended)
  • Application Deadline: September 9, 2015 (required)
