July 26, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources


Are you looking for funding for an innovative research project? Does your research address an area of clinical and translational science or a community-identified health priority? If so, you are encouraged to apply for the Translational Science Award pilot funding.

The funding is offered by the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR). Applications are open to faculty from all 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 the university..

MICHR has restructured its pilot grant funding to encourage applications 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.

Applications are due Sept. 12 at 11:59 p.m. via UMMS Competition Space.

MICHR is offering virtual pilot grant information sessions to help you understand the three different approaches and the guidelines for developing your application. The institute will also answer any related questions you may have. Learn more and register here.

Further information about MICHR’s pilot grants, including application guidelines and eligibility requirements, is available here. See our latest round of awardees here.
