Pilot Funding Competition for Collaborative Research

The School of Medicine and the UCI School of Biological Sciences are pleased to announce the 2018-2019 competition for pilot funding.

We are encouraged by the progress made by the inaugural group of awardees and have decided to support the competition for a second consecutive year.

This pilot funding program aims to bring together faculty from the two schools to collaborate and initiate innovative research projects in novel areas of investigation, with the expectation that the work will lead to extramural funding.

Five awards of up to $50,000 each for a one-year period will be made.

Applications are due July 2, 2018.
