  • UCDC Seed Funding Application Request

    Research Focus: Diabetes continues to grow as a worldwide epidemic and as a challenge for Alabama and Birmingham. The disease affects all aspects of life and development of better approaches to deal with it will therefore require a truly multi-disciplinary approach. To address this issue, the purpose of this year’s award is to allow faculty from all UAB schools to initiate novel collaborative diabetes research projects that take advantage of the expertise of faculty from at least 2 different schools on campus. It is expected that the provided seed funding will be utilized to obtain sufficient data to apply for significant extramural funding.

    Eligibility: Funding will be available to full time UAB faculty members at any rank, but a strong track record of publication and funding is desirable. Only applications with faculty from at least 2 different UAB schools will be considered in this RFA.

    Funding and Review Process: The UCDC Seed Funding Program will fund studies at up to $50,000 for one year. Because the scope and nature of the applications may vary, the size of the award may also vary. Applications will be selected for funding based on merit using NIH study section criteria. Projects will be favored if consistent with the focus of this RFA and likely to lead to future NIH funding; multiple PIs are admissible and applications from other research centers are encouraged. Funding for selected projects is expected to begin May 1, 2019.

    Application Procedure: To apply, please submit the following in one PDF file to Tdgrimes1@uabmc.edu by March 15, 2019 by 5pm:

    (i)        Research Plan (limited to 5 pages, excluding references) should include the following paragraphs: Specific  Aims,  Significance  &  Innovation,  Approach  (including  any preliminary data  and  research design), Multiple PI plan where applicable and a Plan for future extramural funding applications.

    (ii)       Budget (PI salary is not permitted), Budget Justification, Current and Pending Support and declaration if this project is under consideration via any other external or internal funding mechanism.

    (iii)       NIH Biosketch (limit 4 pages)

    Acceptance: Acceptance of seed funding will require the PI to adhere to a plan for submitting grants to extramural funding agencies, to present a research seminar at study completion, and to report research progress to Dr. Anath Shalev, Director of the UAB Comprehensive Diabetes Center.

    Questions:  If you have questions concerning eligibility or the submission of these proposals, please    contact Tiffany Grimes (Tdgrimes1@uabmc.edu or 996-4777).

  • UAB Comprehensive Cardiovascular Center (CCVC) 2019 Integrative Mechanisms in Cardiovascular Disease RFA

    The UAB Comprehensive Cardiovascular Center (CCVC) is pleased to announce this RFA to fund one pilot project that focuses on integrative mechanisms that link two or more systems in cardiovascular disease.  Potential examples of integration include  relationships between different organs/axes (e.g., cardiopulmonary, cardiorenal, cardiometabolic), cell types (e.g., cardiomyocyte-fibroblast, cardiomyocyte-macrophages), clinical diseases (e.g., cardio-oncology, WHO group 2 pulmonary hypertension) among others. Other applications of high quality related to cardiovascular disease will also be considered. The successful recipient will be awarded $50,000 from the CCVC.

    If funded, the proposed start date of the CCVC Integrative Mechanisms in Cardiovascular Disease Grant will be October 1, 2019.  It is anticipated that 1 pilot project with a budget not exceeding a total of $50,000 will be awarded based on merit and availability of funds.  Awardees will be required to provide a six-month interim presentation to the committee on project progress as well as a one-year report on accomplishments.
