Provides pilot funding to encourage the use non-human primates (NHP) or NHP-derived materials for new collaborative projects that will lead to new external funding of research with clear translational outcomes. Priority will be given to new collaborations between established investigators at ONPRC and basic or clinical scientists at OHSU. The program will consider more modest projects utilizing existing NHP samples or materials, and which represent and extension of an existing study that could form the basis for a new collaborative research direction. Applications in the areas of genetics, metabolic disease, stem cell therapies, addiction, early childhood health and development, and aging research are strongly encouraged.
Deadline:
Letter of intent: March 16, 2012; Full application (by invitation): April 6, 2012
Amount:
This solicitation is for two or three one-year projects with a maximum budget of $50,000 to $75,000 depending on project scope.
Eligibility: Requires substantial involvement of co-PIs from ONPRC (core scientist) and OCTRI (faculty-level investigators). Applicants must have had no prior funding as PI on an NIH research grant.

ONPRC Pilot Research Program
Description:
Provides pilot funding to encourage activities related to the use of NHPs for biomedical research or for studies enhancing the welfare or husbandry of NHPs. Pilot research should be developmental or high risk and should be used to generate preliminary data or results necessary to apply for support from sources of funding such as NIH grants. All activities related to the use of non-human primates must be conducted onsite at ONPRC.
Deadline:
Letter of intent: March 16, 2012; Full application (by invitation): April 6, 2012
Amount:
Up to $75,000 for one year.
Eligibility:
Applicants need not be ONPRC core scientists; however involvement of a core scientist is necessary.

OCTRI Community Pilot Grant
Description:
OCTRI’s Community & Practice Research program seeks to work collaboratively with community organizations, health care practices, and researchers to study how best to improve the health of Oregonians. The purpose of this funding mechanism is to encourage community-based research projects that will lead to external funding. Proposals must address a health problem/need in the community the applicant serves.
Deadline:
Letter of intent: March 19, 2012; Full application (by invitation): May 14, 2012
Amount:
This solicitation is for one or two one-year projects with a maximum budget of $20,000.
