Pilot/Feasibility (P/F) Study Opportunities

  • P/F studies provide 1-2 years of support to enable eligible investigators to explore the feasibility of a nutrition or obesity-related concept and acquire sufficient data to pursue extramural funding opportunities.
  • P/F funding generally supports full-time faculty members or post-doctoral researchers who are new investigators (usually below the rank of Associate Professor) and without current or past NIH R01 equivalent NIH funding research project support. Less frequently, we fund established investigators for whom the topics of nutrition and obesity represent a substantial departure from their current work.
  • Solicitation of applications occurs annually, with the intent to support 3 P/F Study projects at a level of up to $50,000/year.
  • The 2024 application deadline is February 26, 2024.
