Junior Investigator Pilot/Preliminary Data Grant Program

The Center for Human Phenomic ScienceĀ is accepting research proposals to be considered for the Junior Investigator Preliminary/Feasibility Grant Program (JIPGP).

The primary goal of the CHPS JIPGP is to encourage junior investigators to develop clinical research projects that will ultimately lead to competitive extramural funding and a career in Clinical Translational Research Center-focused clinical investigation. The awards are designed to allow junior faculty members and M.D., Ph.D. or D.M.D post-doctoral trainees with appropriate mentors to obtain funds for pilot projects that are investigator-initiated, human-based, CHPS studies that will enable an applicant to obtain preliminary data.

The grants will be available at each institution effective July 1, 2021.

Anticipated Dates

  • Application Receipt Deadline: March 5, 2021 at Noon
