The Mid-South TCC seeks to fund pilot research projects that investigate the social, economic, cultural, and environmental factors driving and sustaining health disparities in obesity and related chronic diseases. Proposed research should consider pathways to obesity and related chronic diseases and the mechanisms connecting such pathways to health disparities throughout the life course.
Examples of proposed research include: 1) Studies of the relationship between social factors and health during critical periods in the life course, such as pregnancy, early childhood, and old age; 2) Studies to identify the effect of specific social determinants on biological and behavioral mechanisms that produce health disparities; 3) Any other studies that advance the theme of the Mid-South TCC as described above.
The application process will be conducted in two phases: letter of intent and full proposal. Letters of intent deemed meritorious by the selection committee will be invited to submit a full proposal.
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. Those seeking a second year of funding should apply with the regular P&F procedure.)
