The leadership of The Ohio State University College of Medicine (COM) is dedicated to the success of independent faculty research programs. To enable development of novel research ideas, the COM offers a new Pilot Funding Grant program. The goal of this program is to provide sufficient research support to generate pilot data for extramural grant application(s), specifically funding with full indirect costs, within one year of the award. This program will enable successful scientists with a track record of productivity to broaden their research portfolio or generate new resources, striking out in new directions beyond current research, in areas relevant to the science community at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and of interest to extramural funding agencies.
There will be four application deadlines per year: the calendar year 2012 deadlines are September 30, 2012, and December 31, 2012. All applications are due to the COM Office of Research by 5:00 PM on the designated deadline day. Read more
