Four times a year, the Medical Research Foundation of Oregon offers grants for promising biomedical exploration and the development of research careers in clinical investigation. The next deadline for these awards is August 15, 2012.
The New Investigator Grant supports junior faculty who are new to research and are currently without major funding resources. The grant provides up to $40,000, with two to three grants awarded quarterly. Principal investigators 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 principal investigator and the commitment of the unit to that investigator and their research program.
Post-doctoral trainees and clinical fellow with specific plans for a career in clinical research should consider applying for the Early Clinical Investigator Grant, which provides up to $20,000 in support of the development of research careers. A letter of support from the department chair or division head and from the director of the training program must accompany each application. The Applicant Qualifications Form should be completed by the applicant’s mentor and included with the application and support letters.
The Emergency Interim Support Grant supports established investigators who are in need of bridge funding. The grant provides up to $40,000 for research programs that have lost national grant funding, enabling investigators to develop data supporting application renewals. The application must contain a clear explanation of current grant funding and the status of grants in revision.
