Applications are solicited for pilot projects to conduct basic, translational, patient-based or outcomes research broadly relating to pediatric digestive disease. Applications will be considered in all areas of digestive disease research with particular emphasis on the following Digestive Health Center (DHC) focus areas:
- Mechanisms of Liver Disease
Digestive Disease and Immunity
Stem Cell and Organoid Modeling of Digestive Disease (as it relates to digestive disease)
Funds will support highly focused projects from individual investigators with the goal of generating preliminary data sufficient to support an application for independent research through traditional NIH mechanisms. Funding for projects will range from $40,000 to $50,000 depending on budgetary needs and number of selected applications.
The deadline for applications is the first Monday of December at 5 p.m.
