Do you need to obtain preliminary data that will strengthen an extramural grant application and help you establish your long-term research goals? To support faculty along their career trajectories, the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research is offering two new funding mechanisms – Pathway to First Grant and Pathway to Independence. These awards are intended to support investigators who need to collect additional data to competitively pursue their first extramural grants (such as NIH K or R21) or larger independent grants (such as NIH R01 or similar).
Research should propose addressing an important area of clinical and translational science or a community-identified health priority. Applications are encouraged for projects at all stages of translation (T1-T4) that use one of the following approaches to research: investigator-initiated research, collaborative research, or community-based participatory research. Details are available here.
Applications for these awards are open to faculty from all campuses, schools, and colleges at the University of Michigan, as well as partners affiliated with community and patient coalitions and groups, nonprofit organizations, government, and other agencies outside U-M.
Applications for the Pathway Awards are due November 14, 2018 and must be submitted via UMMS Competition Space.
