Seed Grant Awards
The CIBR Center for Computational and Integrative Biomedical Research is pleased to announce the third year of Seed Grant Awards sponsored by Baylor College of Medicine.
The purpose of these awards is to support the mission of the CIBR Center by fostering novel collaborations that bridge the translational gap from data to models, and from models to drug discovery and personalized therapy. The CIBR Pilot Project Awards aim specifically to bring together research questions and methods from two or more labs that include substantive new analytical, statistical, or computational components. Successful proposals should aim to generate preliminary data leading to new R01 submissions by the October, 2014.
The application review and selection process will be overseen by members of the CIBR faculty and appropriate BCM scientists. Six awards will be funded at $15,000 each in unrestricted funds to be expended by the end of FY14. The awards are open to all BCM faculty members; adjunct faculty, research faculty and instructors are eligible as collaborators. Previous awardees may reapply for an additional year of funding or on a new project. Applications are due by Oct. 25, 2013, 11:59 p.m. Applications will be reviewed and scored on an NIH 1-9 scale. We expect to announce awards at the end of November, 2013.
