July 27, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Are you interested in positioning your interdisciplinary research team to be competitive for an external large-scale grant (e.g., NIH 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’re encouraged to apply for $100,000 in funding and tailored research support available through the Accelerating Synergy Award.

Hosted by the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research, in partnership with the U-M Medical School Office of Research, we are pleased to offer two award mechanisms: 1) Basic Research and 2) Translational Research.

Awardees will receive up to $100,000 to tackle significant and complex research questions. This funding, coupled with tailored MICHR support, will provide the foundation for future large-scale grant submissions. Details are available here.

Applications for this award are open to faculty from all schools and colleges at U-M, with mechanism-specific requirements noted in the guidelines.

Pre-applications are due Wednesday, Aug. 18 through UMMS Competition Space.
