Current Research Funding Opportunities
The Center for Advanced Digestive Care periodically posts requests for applications, funded both by the CADC and by close partners. Current grant opportunities are listed below.
Jill Roberts Institute for Research in IBD Funding Opportunity
In an effort to encourage novel research in the field of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, the Jill Roberts Institute for Research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease and the Center for Advanced Digestive Care (CADC) are soliciting requests for one-year projects. This RFA is open to investigators new to IBD or established investigators in this area who can demonstrate this is a new area of research. The primary goal of this competition is to stimulate novel research that will ultimately lead to competitive extramural grant applications. Awards for funded projects will be $50,000 to $75,000.
Please see RFA for further details. The deadline for submission has been extended to December 1, 2015.
Please contact Bridget McClure for more information.
