Key dates for FY13 Program Project funding:
Purpose: This is a program at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences that is designed to encourage interdisciplinary translational research. The goal is to provide the USU faculty the opportunity to build a starter "Program Project" which should place them into a position to apply for a National Institutes of Health Program Project (P01) or similar award. This should not be seen as a substitute for extramural funding but rather as a stepping stone to a large multi-investigator grant.
Eligible Individuals: At least two (2) of the projects must be directed by USU billeted faculty and one of these individuals must take on the leadership role as the lead principal investigator who is responsible administratively for the application.
One of the three projects may be at one of the DOD medical treatment or research facilities under the direction of an investigator with a USU faculty appointment, with preference for the national capital area. At least one of the projects must be from the USU clinical departments.
Non-DOD researchers are not permitted to apply. Previous USU Program Project award recipients cannot apply. Sub-awards are not permissible.
