UNC Computational Medicine Program Tier 1: Pilot Awards
Applications are now open from October 1, 2021, and will be closed: 5:00 pm Sunday, October 31, 2021
The UNC Computational Medicine Program Pilot Awards are intended to foster the development of new collaborative research projects at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that integrate computational approaches into biomedical research. An expected outcome of these awards is the submission of new grant applications for extramural funding. All UNC-Chapel Hill faculty are eligible and encouraged to apply.
Up to three awards of $50,000 will be given out this year. Proposals will be judged on their innovative use of computational approaches and significance to human health. The study section chaired by the previous winners will review all proposals.
Pilot Awards will consist of up to $50,000 for one year, with expected start dates of January 1, 2022. Proposed projects should consist of teams of at least two investigators: one with expertise in the computational approaches to be applied and one with expertise in the field of biomedical research to be addressed.
