"Research Funding"
 
   Hello,

I work with various foundations that are willing to fund any research for the development of a vaccine or cure for Herpes. If you know of anyone who is looking for funding please let me know. I will then explain how the process works.


Best Regards,

Tom

   Hello Tom,

The Knipe Laboratory at Harvard Medical School is looking for funding....

The check can be made to "Harvard Medical School" and in the memo space you can note "Knipe Laboratory". You can send the contribution to:

Office of REsource Development
Harvard Medical School
401 Park Drive, Ste 22W
Boston, MA 02115

And also, a few of us have started collecting funds to help the U of Fl HSV researchers establish an online donation system with an initial donation of $2000. It has been a challenge asking the HSV community to help. It has been slow going but if a foundation can fund the U of FL study, then that would help us out tremendously.....

Please contact Karen Pastos at U of Fl for further instructions or you can contact me to get her email address. The U of Fl foundation address is

University of Florida Foundation, Inc.
ATTN: Wendy Lafferty
P.O. Box 14425
Gainesville, FL 32604

   Hi Tom,

The following was posted here http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/messageforum/showthread.php?t=14179&page=11.

Hi Everyone,

Karen P. (my point of contact) at U of Fl phoned me this morning to give me some information and status on David Bloom's HSV research.

The ribozymes created for HSV1 is ready for clinical trials. When research is at this stage, it is waiting for someone to purchase rights to use it for clinicals. Unless venture capitalists or big pharma purchases the rights, it can sit for years.

The ribozyme study for HSV2 is in pre-clinical study. David Bloom needs funding for this study. There is currently no funding for it. To complete the study it will take $200,000. The good news is that once they complete the study and it is ready for clinical trials, venture capitalists are waiting to purchase the rights to take it to clinical. The venture capitalists are more interested in purchasing the rights for this study because they feel it is more marketable and there will be more interest from the public.

David Bloom is developing a website that will link to his homepage. The website will contain information about both the HSV1 Ribozyme study and HSV2 Ribozyme study. The website will contain a link to allow the people to contribute to the research. He will provide updates on the project and the amount of money raised.

However, we still need to do our part of raising the minimum requirement of $2000 to kickstart the fund. Once the minimum amount is raised, then Karen P. will create the fund that David Bloom can access and use for the research. But David cannot yet receive contributions on his website until we raise the minimum requirement to establish the research fund that is particular for his research.

Karen P. also shared that we are not the only ones who are interested in David Bloom's research. This is most exciting. She was pleased that we have started to raise the funds. I told her we should have the minimum raised by February.

P.S. (a side note) The contribution and contribution letter will be submitted to Karen P.

Thanks,

Bella

Dear Tom!

I was wondering if you were still looking to fund any research for the development of a cure for Herpes.

Dr David Bloom is the closest to finding a cure at this stage, and needs only $40,000 more dollars so that he can complete one more phase of pre-clinical HSV-1 reactivation experiments. This should enable him to begin talks with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding filing for an Investigational New Drug (IND) to initiate human trials. His plan is to then to apply to University of Florida's Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) at that point to get funds to help with the necessary toxicology studies for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval to go forward with clinical trials ($250,000). Dr. Bloom is first focusing on HSV-1 and it is critical he makes it through the various clinical phases successfully so he can move to HSV-2 as well.

You can read more about D. Blooms research and how to help at
http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/herpes-cure-coalition/

Please consider Dr David Bloom if you are indeed looking for a way to help millions of Herpes sufferers around the world. He and University of Florida is looking for a partner to cure Herpes. Also know that Herpes 2 billion dollar market, so as a partner it would be worth a lot.
Please do contact me through this forum, I can help with any additional information should you so wish.

Best regards,

mamaem
