A University-Wide Interdisciplinary Research Center (UWIRC), GC-CODED is an inter- and multi-disciplinary integrated center providing a focused forum for the development of novel therapies, training of students, residents and faculty, and education of the community in areas related to conditions of the craniofacial/ oral complex and dentition.


GC-CODED Research Core Vouchers

This Target Research Program provides direct research support to GC-CODED investigators to offset expense(s) for core facility services for dental related research. It is expected that the award will either augment a currently funded application or help provide critical preliminary data for an extramural application. Applicants may apply for up to $2000 in direct research support. Allowable expenses include payments to any UAB institutional core facility. Other expenses are not allowed. Any work supported by this program requires appropriate regulatory approvals as applicable.

Applicants should provide a one-page outline of the project, how the use of the core facility will help advance the project, what will be enabled by the investment (e.g., manuscript, grant application, additional aims), and a budget with justification including sample sizes and sample size justification.

For more information on the center visit the UAB Research site.
