Call for Pre-Proposals: Transformative Research in Metabolism
by Center for Transformative Research in Metabolism (TRiM) |
The Center for Transformative Research in Metabolism (TRiM), supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health, National Institutes of General Medical Sciences (Award P20GM130443), is calling for Pre-Proposals to fund developmental research projects in the biomedical and health sciences for eligible UAF and UAA new investigators. TRiM’s central scientific focus is on the regulation of metabolic flexibility, anabolic sensitivity, and energy homeostasis and includes basic, translational, and clinical research informed by hibernation biology. Prospective research pilot projects should (1) complement an existing TRiM project or enhance the sustainability of a TRiM research core; (2) be cost effective and able to synergize with ongoing TRiM supported Research Projects and Research Cores; and (3) bring needed infrastructure to complete a therapeutic discovery platform offered by TRiM. Collaborations with TRiM key personnel are strongly encouraged.
The preproposal should include a (1) One-Page Specific Aims, (2) NIH Biosketch, and (3) Description of Facilities. The due date is Oct. 5, 2020 at 5 p.m. The award amount is $25,000 to $80,000 with funding from July 1, 2021-June 30, 2023. Please submit your pre-proposal and completed full proposal to Denise Daniello, Program Coordinator, at email@example.com. The full proposal is due Jan. 11, 2021 at 5 p.m.
TRiM is also providing a voluntary opportunity to Pitch your specific aims and recruit team players on Friday, Oct. 9 from noon to 2 p.m. The Pitch is not required but strongly encouraged.
