Request for Applications: 2013 BSOM Seed Grant Programs

The Office of Research Affairs announces four internal seed grant programs in FY 2013 for faculty investigators at the Boonshoft School of Medicine. The application deadline for all grant programs is February 1, 2013, for project funding periods beginning July 1, 2013.

Emerging Science Seed Grants fund new research projects with a strong potential for extramural support. Submission of an external grant proposal is a required outcome. Funding: up to $15,000. See program guidelines; download the application form (MS Word).

Genomics Seed Grants support new research projects that utilize core facilities at WSU’s Center for Genomics Research (CGR). Submission of an external grant proposal is a required outcome. Funding: support for a maximum of 30 gene array samples. (Funding reimburses CGR for materials and services and is NOT awarded directly to the principal investigator.) The principal investigator must have adequate funding to support all other components of the research project. See program guidelines; download the application form (MS Word).

Proteomics Seed Grants support new research projects that utilize core facilities at WSU’s Proteome Analysis Laboratory (PAL). Submission of an external grant proposal is a required outcome. Funding: support for a maximum of 38 proteome samples. (Funding reimburses PAL for materials and services and is NOT awarded directly to the principal investigator.) The principal investigator must have adequate funding to support all other components of the research project. PI’s may also apply for an Emerging Science Seed Grant to support a study’s non-proteomic research components. See program guidelines; download the application form (MS Word).

Medical Education Research Grants support rigorous scientific research in medical education that may not necessarily lead to future extramural support. Engaging the educational research community is a required outcome. Funding: up to $5,000, departmental matching support expected. See program guidelines; download the application form (MS Word).

Seed grant proposals will be evaluated using criteria based on the NIH Enhanced Review Criteria implemented in 2009. Modifications have been made to fit the scale of the BSOM’s internal seed grant programs. Reviewers will evaluate proposals using a 9-point scoring system similar to that used by NIH.

The BSOM Research Committee will review and score the proposals. Recommendations will be made for the top ranked proposals and submitted to the BSOM Associate Dean for Research Affairs for final decision.

If you have questions about the seed grant programs, contact Virginia Byrd, administrative assistant (virginia.byrd@wright.edu; 775-3018).
