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.
