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.
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.
The UAB Diabetes Research Center (DRC) will be offering travel awards for graduate students and post-doctoral or clinical fellows who will be presenting their work as an accepted poster or oral presentation at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 77th Scientific Sessions, June 9-13, 2017 in San Diego, CA.
