Intramural Funding

COVID-19 Funding Opportunities
Deadline: Varies by opportunity 

The Immunology, Inflammation, and Infectious Disease (3i) Initiative in partnership with the Office of the Vice President For Research at the University of Utah is pleased to announce a request for proposals for research projects specifically focused on the COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 virus and the related pandemic. The goal of this program is to support and enhance preliminary/project data for emerging research projects that will create competitive applications that are able to quickly respond to national funding opportunities. For more details, please visit 3i's  funding opportunity website. 

Please contact Nicole Elise Frank with questions. 

Center on Aging Pilot Grants
Deadline: April 2, 2020  

The Center on Aging sponsors an annual pilot grant program to promote the development of aging research at the University of Utah. The goal of this program is to encourage new investigator career development, attract established investigators to aging research, and stimulate interdisciplinary research collaborations – ultimately leading to new externally funded research. We especially encourage applications from two or more investigators (ideally from two or more colleges) who are establishing an interdisciplinary research collaboration in an aging-related interest area.   

Please contact either Dr. Mark Supiano or Heather Podolan with questions.

Innovations in Aging Research
Deadline: May 18, 2020 

This “Innovations in Aging Research” Request for Proposals (RFP) differs from the "traditional" pilot grant program (described above) the CoA has sponsored since 2016. The CoA leadership recognizes that today there are unprecedented opportunities to advance aging research, and that these advances will most likely be driven by new, interprofessional collaborations in team-based approaches. Moreover, the target of this RFP is to reach beyond a single investigator-initiated award by supporting the development of larger, multi-investigator projects based on a thematic area. The goal of this program is to promote collaborations and provide funding support to enhance preliminary/project data that will allow competitive applications for multi-PI extramural funding by the NIH or other agencies and foundations, such as multi-PI R01s and P01s and center grants (P30, P60 and others). We invite applications from all areas of collaborative aging research that will lead to competitive extramural multi-PI grant applications. 

Please contact Dr. Mark Supiano or Heather Podolan with questions.
