Applications Due: Monday, May 15, 2023 by 8AM.

No late applications will be accepted. The 8am deadline allows our faculty the opportunity to utilize the weekend if needed.

Background: The Research Innovation/Pilot Grant Program was established to assist College of Medicine faculty with generating preliminary data necessary to develop highly competitive NIH or other grant applications, or to take their research in a new direction.

This program seeks to support the development of innovative studies with a high potential for future extramural funding, and is designed to enhance new or current faculty research programs. A research study is responsive to the RFA if it:

  • Uses innovative approaches or discoveries to address relevant problems in the field of medicine
  • Contributes critical experiments or data gathering to an existing research program that will enhance funding success;
  • Brings interdisciplinary expertise to initiate a new research direction for the PI.

For more information, please see the RFA:
