2014 Pilot Project Program

Scope

The Lung Biology Center (LBC) requests applications for Pilot Project Program (P3) Awards that advance the understanding and treatment of lung disease. The goal of these awards is to fund high-impact basic, translational, and clinical research, to strengthen LBC faculty interactions via mentoring and interdisciplinary collaborations, and to leverage extramural funding opportunities.

New 2014 pilot projects will be funded by the NIH Lung Biology COBRE and the Geisel School of Medicine through two mechanisms:
1. Mentored awards for junior (non-tenured) faculty.
2. Collaborative awards that engage two or more faculty across disciplines.

Eligibility

This Pilot Project RFA is open to Dartmouth faculty holding the PhD and/or MD degree(s) whose research falls in the area of Lung Biology. Junior faculty serving as PI must identify a senior LBC faculty mentor. Expected start date is August 1, 2014. No funding will be provided for faculty investigator salaries, service contracts, off-site expenses or any indirect costs.

Deadline

April 23, 2014
