Four times a year, the Medical Research Foundation of Oregon, part of the OHSU Foundation, offers grants for promising biomedical exploration and the development of research careers in clinical investigation. The following awards have a deadline of May 15, 2012:
- New Investigator Grant – Provides up to $40,000 to support promising new investigators in biomedical research. Grants are intended for physicians and scientists who are new to research and are currently without major funding resources. To be eligible, PIs must be at the beginning of an independent career with a faculty position at one of Oregon’s colleges or universities. A letter of support from the department chair or division head must accompany each application describing the independence of the PI and the commitment of the unit to that investigator and their research program.
- Early Clinical Investigator Grant – Provides up to $20,000 in support of biomedical exploration and the development of young clinical researchers in Oregon. To be eligible, PIs must be post-doctoral trainees or clinical fellows with specific plans for a career in clinical research. A letter of support from the department chair or division head and from the director of the training program must accompany each application. A letter from the applicant’s mentor should also be included.
- Emergency Interim Support Grant – Provides up to $40,000 of support for established investigators who are in need of bridge funding. The grant provides funding for research programs that have lost national grant funding, enabling investigators to develop data supporting application renewals. To be eligible, the application must contain a clear explanation of current grant funding and the status of grants in revision.
