Biomedical Research Grant
The objective of the Biomedical Research Grant Program is to foster scholarly and creative research by worthy investigators so that they can compete successfully for extramural research support. In general, two categories of research projects will benefit from this program: 1) research projects of investigators new to Indiana University School of Medicine who do not yet have extramural funding and who need support to acquire the preliminary data necessary to compete for extramural funding; 2) research projects of established investigators of Indiana University School of Medicine who are between funding periods from extramural sources.
Applications for both categories are considered small grants and should have a maximum requested amount of $40,000 and be limited to one (1) year duration.
WHO MAY APPLY
All full-time faculty, regardless of tenure status, having an appointment of Assistant Professor or Assistant Scientist and above, are eligible to apply for a Biomedical Research Grant. Primary appointment must be in the School of Medicine. This eligibility includes those faculty appointed as part-time Assistant Professor or above. Faculty in Visiting ranks are not eligible for funding through this mechanism.
