Welcome to Research Funding & Development Services. We're a central resource to help investigators at Oregon Health and Science University find funding, assess funding strategy, and write better grants.

Featured Funding Opportunity

Collins Medical Trust
The purpose of these awards is to aid, further, promote, and develop research projects 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, as well as for medical education projects. Successful proposals will impact the health of Oregonians, but also have the potential to have national impact. Postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and medical residents are eligible. Seed funding is from $25,000 to $30,000 for one year. OHSU is limited to submit up to 15 applications for each of their three annual deadlines and typically funds two to four projects each round. Instead of accepting applications on a first-come, first-served basis, interested applicants have a one-week window from Feb. 5 to 12 to submit a Notice of Intent to the OHSU Foundation.

Research Grants
Human Frontier Science Program

Provides funding for a team of three to four scientists from different countries who wish to combine their expertise in innovative approaches to questions that could not be answered by individual laboratories. Emphasis is placed on novel collaborations that bring together scientists preferably from different disciplines (e.g. from chemistry, physics, computer science, engineering) to focus on problems in the life sciences. The principal applicant must be from one of the eligible countries. However, other participating scientists and laboratories may be situated anywhere in the world. Up to $450,000 per year for three years will be awarded per team.
