Welcome to the redesigned research pages for the Department of Medicine. Content is being added and manipulated constantly with the ultimate goal of bringing our faculty a central resource for any and all research-related questions. While we are in the building phase we ask for your patience and hope that once the majority of content is in place we can gather some feedback and suggestions for additions.

2016 NIH Mentored Career Development Program Award

The overall goal of this award is to provide training opportunities for junior faculty working in clinical and translational research to become independent investigators. The program focuses on junior faculty with strong potential for careers in clinical and translational research.

CTSI Announces the 2016 Call for Research Proposals for the Pilot and Collaborative Clinical and Translational Research Grants


The American Asthma Foundation (AAF) Scholars Program is now accepting applications for 2016 AAF Scholar Awards. (pdf)

* The application deadline is 2 months earlier than in prior years: December 1, 2015.

*Most AAF Scholars will be studying asthma for the first time.  We seek innovative scientists from across the broad spectrum of science, asking them to apply their expertise to asthma.  We are interested in biologists as well as chemists, physicists and engineers.

*Scientists already in asthma are also eligible to apply, but they must be proposing work that is a clear departure from their current research program. So in targeting investigators for a 2016 AAF Scholar Award, the best matches will likely not be in the asthma field.

*Because we are asking investigators to consider a change in the focus of their research, we do not require preliminary data.

*The application is also short (7 pages max).

NIA Now Accepting Applications for GEMSSTAR Program

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) is now accepting applications for funding through the Grants for Early Medical Surgical Subspecialists Transition to Aging Research (GEMSSTAR) Program. Recipients can qualify for up to $150,000 in direct research funding. The deadline to apply is Wed., Oct. 7. FAQs.

The Jahnigen Career Development Award and the T. Franklin Williams Award offer funding for a Professional Development Plan (PDP) to complement the R03 research project funded under the NIA's GEMSSTAR award mechanism. The AGS's Geriatrics-for-Specialists Initiative serves as a central coordinating body for the Jahnigen Award for surgical subspecialists. The Health in Aging Foundation offers the Williams Award for geriatricians.

Follow the Funding

From The Scientist magazine: In times of budget belt-tightening at the federal level, life-science researchers can keep their work supported through private sources.
