Collins Medical Trust
The Collins Medical Trust was established in 1956 by Truman W. Collins. The Original Trust document states that monies from the Trust shall be used: To aid, further, promote, develop, encourage and sponsor research, experiment and work in the cause, cure and treatment of human disease or in any field of medical research, and to aid, further and promote medical education.
The Collins Medical Trust requests that OHSU submit only 15 proposals each cycle and that all proposals be submitted together by the OHSU Foundation. To reserve a place, submit your Notice of Intent form during the open application period and follow directions in the Faculty Submission Information document below. The OHSU Foundation collects all applications one week before the Collins Medical Trust deadline and coordinates the simultaneous submission of the 15 proposals.

What type of projects does the Collins Medical Trust fund?
The Collins Medical Trust typically provides seed funding for projects that will be eligible for NIH or other substantial funding in the future. Successful proposals will highlight the impact of the project on the immediate population served and in Oregon, and also the potential impact the research could have nationally. Young investigators should describe their relationship with a mentor to demonstrate that they have guidance in their work.
