Funding Opportunities

Center for Health + Technology (CHeT)

The Center for Health + Technology (CHeT), in conjunction with the Ernest J. Del Monte Institute for Neuroscience, announces the availability of pilot and feasibility awards (up to $50,000 per award) for clinical research projects.  Competitive proposals will focus on innovative applications of technology (e.g. novel use of electronic health record data, wearable sensors, digital tools, human-machine interfaces, etc.) in research with human participants to yield new insights into clinical neuroscience.

Application Submission Deadlines

For more information on the above award, download the CHeT RFA.

Please send applications by email as a single pdf file attachment to:  Jeanne.Paiko@chet.rochester.edu
Address all other questions about applications to: Erika_Augustine@urmc.rochester.edu

The application deadline is Friday, June 22, 2018 by 5:00 pm.
Funded projects will begin September 1, 2018.

The Ernest J. Del Monte Institute for Neuroscience

The Ernest J. Del Monte Institute for Neuroscience (DINS) is pleased to announce the availability of up to 7 pilot project awards (maximum budget of $50,000 per award) to support novel basic and translational projects in the neurosciences. These awards will be supported under two programs for 2018 and are open to all faculty members across both the Medical School and the Undergraduate Campus. 

The Schmitt Program in Integrative Neuroscience

The Schmitt Program in Integrative Neuroscience (SPIN) supports pilot and feasibility awards for basic science and translational projects that advance our understanding of both normal and abnormal brain functioning (4-5 awards available).

The Harry T. Mangurian Jr. Foundation

The Harry T. Mangurian Jr. Foundation (MF) offers pilot and feasibility awards for basic, clinical and translational projects that specifically support research on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (2 awards available).

Application Submission Deadlines

Please send applications by email as a single pdf file attachment to: Kathleen_Jensen@urmc.rochester.edu
Address all other questions about applications to: John_Foxe@urmc.rochester.edu

Application submissions are due on Friday June 1st by 5:00pm.

An internal review committee will work with a panel of independent external reviewers to determine the most competitive projects for support. The Program is administered through the Del Monte Institute for Neuroscience.

Committee Review will be completed in roughly a month, with funding scheduled to begin by mid-July.

Alzheimer Disease Research

The Rochester Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research (RCADR), in conjunction with the Ernest J. Del Monte Institute for Neuroscience, announces the availability of Pilot and Feasibility awards (up to $50,000 per award) for basic science and translational projects that advance our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. The awarded funds are intended to enable new and established investigators to generate preliminary data that will lead to competitive applications for extramural funding. Alzheimer’s disease represents a uniquely challenging problem with enormous impact in our aging society. Thus, RCARD emphasizes innovative approaches to novel research questions. In many cases we expect that  these approaches will be multidisciplinary, leveraging skillsets and techniques across research laboratories and traditional institutional boundaries.
