Six faculty awarded incentive grants to submit a second R01

Written by 

Six School of Medicine faculty projects were recently funded through an AMC21 initiative giving NIH-funded investigators incentive to submit a second R01.

The projects, chosen based on scientific merit, were eligible for $50,000 per year for a period of up to two years, pending appropriate progress and achieving benchmarks. The goal is to have a new funded R01 by the second year. The next cycle for funding for the second R01 incentive grants willl open in fall 2018.
