Junior Investigator Pilot/Preliminary Data Grant Program

The Center for Human Phenomic Science is now accepting research proposals to be considered for the Junior Investigator Preliminary/Feasibility Grant Program (JIPGP) on January 6, 2020.

The primary goal of the CHPS Junior Investigator Preliminary/Feasibility Grant Program (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 June 1, 2020.
