Funding Opportunities

The Department of Medicine fosters innovation and faculty development by providing funding for research, quality and educational initiatives annually.

Pilot Projects

We are excited to continue the Department of Medicine Research and Innovation Awards this year. The goal of this program is to stimulate research (basic, translational and/or clinical), quality projects and educational initiatives.  Six to eight pilot projects will be awarded annually up to $40,000 each. The program will support basic and translational research, clinical investigation, quality and outcomes research, as well as educational and programmatic projects. 

For projects involving research the intent is to fund sustaining programs of scholarship that will lead to extramural funding and peer reviewed publications, and to assist in the development of junior researchers in the Department. Quality improvement and educational projects are expected to lead to innovations in clinical care and medical education that could potentially be disseminated beyond URMC.

Learn about the funding opportunities beginning July 2019 (application deadline is November 30, 2018).
