UAB's Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) will fund at least 3 nutrition-related P/F studies at up to $25,000/year. A second year of funding is possible through a competitive renewal process. (Renewal applications will be considered from investigators currently funded by the NORC P/F program. These applications should show substantial progress in the aims of the original application and propose important new aims that further enhance the prospect of extramural funding.
In response to strategic investments by the UAB SOM in I3 relevant research, the UAB Comprehensive Cardiovascular Center is pleased to announce a joint RFA with the I3 steering committee to fund one or more pilot projects that focus on Inflammation, Infection or Immunity (broadly written) in the context of cardiovascular disease research. The I3 matching funds can be used to generate key preliminary data and/or to continue advancing projects that are undergoing extramural peer review.
Projects, particularly multi-PI projects that have advanced beyond the first stages of planning are especially welcome. Projects that are responsive to an upcoming/issued RFA or will enhance likelihood of continued extramural P30/P50/P60 support for one or more UAB centers will be deemed highly responsive.
This is a 2 year program with students enrolling at the beginning of their second year. Trainees will participate in an integrative curriculum involving didactic elements (that include understanding disease mechanisms, drug discovery and development, translational research administration), career and translational research enrichment activities (including enrollment in a Certificate Program in Translational and Molecular Sciences, academia and industry workshops) and meaningful clinical / patient interaction experiences, the latter of which will be linked with the trainees’ research interests. Providing students with training in translational research early during a student’s matriculation will provide required skills and empower them intellectually to incorporate translational research into their research and prepare them for the diverse requirements for the future workforce.
