Skin Diseases Research Center
The Skin Diseases Research Center (SDRC) is funded by a grant from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases. The goal of the Center is to foster translational and basic research in cutaneous biology and skin diseases. The SDRC sponsors innovative research through its Pilot and Feasibility (P&F) Program.
The SDRC plans to support four new P&F projects for funding for one or two years. Projects are supported with the understanding that the PI will subsequently apply for NIH or equivalent funding using preliminary data acquired during the P&F project period.
Funding for the second year is contingent upon progress and submission of a second application. They must fall into three categories:
Deadline: April 1
Specialized Program of Research Excellence in Gastrointestinal Malignancies (GI SPORE)
All Faculty members are invited to submit outlines for pilot projects to be funded by the NIH P50 GI SPORE. Proposals must be submitted through CTSC Webgrants. Please note that a SPORE project must be directed toward translational research of a GI malignancy. At least one specific aim should involve either direct patient contact or the study of patient derived tissue samples.
Deadline: April 1
Barrett's Esophagus Translational Research Network (BETRNet)
All Faculty members at participating institutions are invited to submit applications for Individual and/or Cross BETRNet pilot projectssubmit applications for Individual and/or Cross BETRNet pilot projectssubmit applications for Individual and/or Cross BETRNet pilot projectssubmit applications for Individual and/or Cross BETRNet pilot projectssubmit applications for Individual and/or Cross BETRNet pilot projects of up to $50,000 to be funded by the U54 BETRNet. Note that a BETRNet project must be directed toward translational research related to Barrett's Esophagus. At least one specific aim should involve either direct patient contact or the study of patient derived tissue samples.
Deadline: May 10
Computational Genomic Epidemiology of Cancer Postdoctoral Training Program
The Case CCC invites applications to its 2-3 year NCI-funded Computational Genomic Epidemiology of Cancer Postdoctoral Training Program. The program combines a mentored cancer research project designed by the fellow in collaboration with their mentors with a specialized curriculum of formal didactic training and individualized longitudinal curriculum.
Candidates with an MD, PhD, or MD/PhD degree, strong quantitative skills, and an interest in a career in genetics research are encouraged to apply.
