Spring applications due May 15, 2010; Summer applications due August 15, 2010
Four times a year, the Medical Research Foundation (MRF), part the OHSU Foundation, offers grants for promising biomedical exploration and the development of research careers in clinical investigation. The next deadline for these awards is May 15, 2010.
The MRF Grant provides funding for basic and applied studies that directly relate to human health. Applicant Categories are as follows: a) New Investigator, for physicians and scientists who are new to research and are currently without major funding resources; b) Emergency Interim Support for Established Investigators, to support ongoing research when an investigator is between grants and a hiatus would jeopardize the program. This grant provides a maximum of $40,000. Applicants are expected to be independent scientists. See full announcement for additional eligibility information.
The Early Clinical Investigator Support Program is intended to further the development of young investigators who interact with human subjects and who are interested in a career in clinical research. This program provides a maximum of $20,000. These grants are made for a period of one year for research conducted in Oregon. To be eligible, The PI must be a post-doctoral trainee or fellow with specific plans for a career in clinical investigation. The award is most appropriate for those who are preparing to apply for national career development funding. Trainees with non-clinical doctoral degrees are eligible but must clearly demonstrate the intent to pursue a career in clinical investigation. Investigators who have faculty appointments at the assistant professor level or above are not eligible. Trainees at earlier stages who are not yet at the stage of planning for independent career development funding are not eligible.
