As of September 1, 2017, the School of Medicine Finance Research Support Team (FiRST) will begin processing grant submissions for the CGIBD faculty. We are happy to begin support for your department.

Please be aware that we need to honor a 7 day required timeline for your submissions. We want to be sure that all submissions receive proper care and support. With multiple, competing priorities, a fair timeline creates the best opportunity for error-free and efficient work that will benefit your chances at funding. So, to that effort, we require your completed Budget, Budget Justification, Guidelines and Biosketch seven days prior to submission deadline. All other required documentation and science materials needed are due 2 days prior to the deadline to allow us to complete data entry and confirm final application package with you before we do the final submit.

If you have circumstances that delay these required deadlines, we will require signature approval from the Director of CGIBD, Dr. Robert Sandler to continue the application process. If you have any questions about your submission, please contact Nhandi Kenion at

Thank you,
