Funding Opportunity Announcement for Research Support from The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Digestive Disease Center
The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Digestive Disease Center (DDC) is accepting grant applications for fiscal year 2014.
This Funding Opportunity Announcement issued by the Digestive Disease Center (DDC) invites submission of investigator-initiated research grants that support original research on digestive diseases, including upper gut motility and acid related diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, pancreaticobiliary diseases, lower gut motility and functional bowel disorders, GI malignancy surveillance and treatments, and hepatology and liver transplantation. Principal Investigators must be full-time members of the Medical College of Wisconsin faculty and only one proposal may be submitted per Principal Investigator.
Proposals fall into three types:
New Investigator Grant
Provides support for junior faculty in the form of seed money for new projects. The grant is expected to provide preliminary data to allow the investigator to apply for national funding.
Established Investigator ~ Bridge Funding Grant
Provides funding for established investigators that have experienced a lapse in funding of an ongoing project. The grant should provide additional data that will allow the investigator to regain their grant support from extramural sources.
Established Investigator ~ New Initiative Grant
Allows an established investigator to extend their research in a new direction. The grant is expected to provide preliminary data for the established investigator to apply for a new grant from an extramural source.
A maximum award budget of $20,000 may include supplies, equipment and salary for technical assistance or related personnel. Funds may not be used for salary support for the Principal Investigator nor to support travel.
Approval for the use of human subjects, human material, animals, radioisotopes, carcinogens, toxic chemicals, pathogens or recombinant DNA, is the responsibility of the Principal Investigator and must be approved prior to receipt of funds.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Grants must be received in the Digestive Disease Center by April 1, 2014. (Note Grants & Contracts will need to review eBridge funding proposal prior to this submission.)
