Are you interested in positioning your interdisciplinary research team to be competitive for an external multi-component NIH large-scale grant (i.e., U- and P-series mechanisms)? Do you need funds to pursue final data collection/analysis, to publish with your collaborators, or to support resources for grant development? If so, you are encouraged to apply for the Accelerating Synergy Award through the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR).
Interdisciplinary research teams who seek to answer compelling questions in the area of translational research can pitch their ideas through the MCubed Diamond Program. MICHR will fully fund a variety of classic cubes ($60K) and mini cubes ($15K). In the absence of traditional funding agency peer review, awarded teams will be able to pursue their innovative ideas and collaborative efforts quickly. Pitches will be accepted through May 15, 2019.
To support faculty along their career trajectories, MICHR is offering two new funding mechanisms 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).
