Develop the Next Generation of Condom

Deadline- 7th May, 2013

Grand Challenges in global health has announced funding opportunity to develop the next generation of condom under Grand Challenges Explorations Round 11. The purpose of this program is to improve the product attributes of one of the most ubiquitous and potentially underutilized products on earth. New concept designs with new materials can be prototyped and tested quickly. Large-scale human clinical trials are not required. Manufacturing capacity, marketing, and distribution channels are already in place.

Proposals must-

    have a testable hypothesis
    include an associated plan for how the idea would be tested or validated
    yield interpretable and unambiguous data in Phase I, in order to be considered for Phase II funding

Funding is offered to

    Application of safe new materials that may preserve or enhance sensation
    Development and testing of new condom shapes/designs that may provide an improved user experience
    Application of knowledge from other fields (e.g. neurobiology, vascular biology) to new strategies for improving condom desirability
