Intramural funding opportunities

NEXUS Pilot Grant Program 2020

Deadline: May 15, 2020, 5:00pm (MST)

The NEXUS Program is pleased to announce its second annual interdisciplinary research pilot grant program focused on interdisciplinary research that will seed the creation of knowledge, and solutions to society’s grand challenges.

Criteria:

Proposals are sought from all colleges/departments at the University of Utah where research teams must comprise two or more regular, full-time faculty members at the University of Utah from different departments and different disciplines and that clearly articulate the interdisciplinary perspective.

The NEXUS Pilot Grant Program is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary research by encouraging new research teams or enhancing existing teams. Only current NEXUS members are eligible to apply for these funds. Membership applications are accepted on a rolling basis. For membership instructions see the NEXUS website.

Innovations in Aging Research

Deadline: May 18, 2020

This “Innovations in Aging Research” Request for Proposals (RFP) differs from the “traditional” pilot grant program (described above) the CoA has sponsored since 2016. The CoA leadership recognizes that today there are unprecedented opportunities to advance aging research, and that these advances will most likely be driven by new, interprofessional collaborations in team-based approaches. Moreover, the target of this RFP is to reach beyond a single investigator-initiated award by supporting the development of larger, multi-investigator projects based on a thematic area. The goal of this program is to promote collaborations and provide funding support to enhance preliminary/project data that will allow competitive applications for multi-PI extramural funding by the NIH or other agencies and foundations, such as multi-PI R01s and P01s and center grants (P30, P60 and others). We invite applications from all areas of collaborative aging research that will lead to competitive extramural multi-PI grant applications.
