Pilot for Established Investigators in Basic and Clinical/Translational Sciences
Award Amount: $37,500
These pilot projects are intended to support a wide range of biomedical research, including fundamental basic science, clinical/translational science, health policy and social science, and population science. Pilot projects are for one year and not renewable. Pilot research should collect data for publications and to acquire successful subsequent funding by other mechanisms.
Pilot for Junior Investigators in Basic and Clinical/Translational Sciences
Award Amount: $37,500
These pilot projects are intended to support a wide range of biomedical research, including fundamental basic science, clinical/translational science, health policy and social science, and population science. Pilot projects are for one year and not renewable.
Pilot - Informing Tobacco Product Regulation (New)
Award Amount: $40,000
The TCORS award provides money that we can award to faculty and senior postdoctoral fellows with innovative research ideas to expand or deepen the reach of our existing TCORS center. Pilot awards are typically used: (1) to initiate a project or (2) to gather preliminary data that will lead to a larger research project or (3) to quickly develop findings that will inform the FDA Center for Tobacco Products in regulation of the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products in order to reduce the public health toll from tobacco product use in the United States. The current FDA Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) research interest areas are listed at http://prevention.nih.gov/tobacco/research.aspx; projects are not, however, limited to these specific areas so long as there is a clear connection to informing FDA regulatory and educational decisions on tobacco.
CC-AMC Pilot Awards in HIV-Associated Malignancies
Award Amount: $50,000 - $100,000
The focus of the awards program is to stimulate research collaborations on HIV-associated malignancies between investigators at the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC) and NCI-supported AIDS Malignancy Consortium (AMC) investigators at UCSF by providing pilot funding to HDFCCC investigators. The purpose of the NCI supplemental funds is to foster pilot projects within the HDFCCC that have the potential to develop into larger independent research projects funded by the NIH or other organizations.
Team Science Grant (New)
Award Amount: $50,000 - $75,000
This program will provide funds for a "Team Science" grant. The goal of this award is to stimulate new collaborations of UCSF scientists from diverse fields, including social, basic, and clinical research, which address clinical and translational research questions that require an innovative, multidisciplinary approach. This award will provide funding to develop complex cross-disciplinary research projects, including arranging meetings of investigators, performing preliminary studies and preparing grant applications. In addition, we encourage teams that are diverse based on gender, ethnicity, race and other characteristics.
** Note: This is different from the HDFCCC T3 Award which will be offered separately later this year.
