The Collins Medical Trust is a local foundation that provides up to $30,000 three times a year to faculty and postdoctoral fellows. The purpose of these awards is to aid, further, promote and develop research related to the cause, cure, and treatment of human diseases. The Trust typically provides seed funding for projects that will be eligible for NIH or other substantial funding. Successful proposals will impact the heath of Oregonians, but also have the potential impact the research nationally. Young investigators applying should describe their relationship with a mentor to demonstrate they have guidance in their work.
Proposals must be submitted to the OHSU Foundation by the internal deadline of December 21, 2010. Applicants must also submit their grants through Research Grants and Contracts (RGC) by December 14, 2010. The OHSU Foundation will submit your proposal to the Collins Medical Trust by January 1, 2011.
