The Wisconsin National Primate Research Center (WNPRC) is now inviting applications for its 2017-2018 Pilot Research Project Grants. The awards provide a maximum of $50,000 (direct costs) for one year.
Pilot research is intended to help investigators generate preliminary data or results necessary to apply for support from other primary sources of funding. Pilot Research Projects may include preliminary activities on biomedical research topics in keeping with the main research areas of the WNPRC (Regenerative and Reproductive Medicine, Global Infectious Disease, Neuroscience, and Energy Metabolism and Chronic Disease) and are typically developmental or exploratory in nature. Investigators at early phases of their careers are especially encouraged to apply.
