Request Targeted Funding Search Highlighted Funding Opportunities School of Medicine New Investigator Faculty Research Grant | Deadline: Friday, March 15, 2024 The School of Medicine Research Committee is pleased to announce the School of Medicine New Investigator Faculty Research Grant competition. It is the policy of the Committee to support seed research projects from new investigators that have a high probability of obtaining extramural funding as a result of this award. The maximum award for a single grant will be $30,000 (direct only), and we anticipate funding 4 proposals. We strongly encourage proposals from senate faculty members that have not obtained their first independent NIH grant, who may have research that is interdisciplinary, and/or that may cross UCI departments and schools or across UC campuses. To qualify, the applicant must have the NIH “Early Stage Investigator” status and not yet competed successfully as a PI to receive substantial independent NIH funding. Please submit inquires to email@example.com. Deadline: Friday, March 15, 2024 Apply via InfoReady. Foundation Funding Opportunities The School of Medicine Research Development Unit (RDU) has collaborated with Corporate and Foundation Relations to curate this list of Foundation funding opportunities.
