 Funding Opportunities

Currently PRF is requesting proposals for two separate Pilot Project Programs.

1. Pathology Proteomics Resource Facility Pilot Project Program

Description: The Department of Pathology invites applications from faculty with primary appointment in Pathology for proteomics related Pilot Projects that intend to use the state-of-the-art Proteomics Resource Facility (PRF) at the University of Michigan Medical School that is led by Dr. Alexey Nesvizhskii. Funds are primarily meant to help offset the cost of proteomic experiments, the results of which could potentially form the basis for or strengthen an extramural grant application. The grant is a cost share (2/3 funded by Department of Pathology and 1/3 by the investigator).

More information about the PRF can be found at: https://www.pathology.med.umich.edu/proteomics-resource-facility

Who Can Apply: Department of Pathology Faculty

Format: The application (which is designed to be as simple as possible) is not to exceed 1.5-2 pages with up to two illustrations/figures allowed if needed (Arial font 11) with the following sections:

  • Brief background
  • Purpose of proteomics experiment
  • What will follow the proteomics findings?
  • Potential Use of Proteomic Data for a grant application (what type of grant, and anticipated application date)
  • References
  • NIH biosketch of PI applicant (including all sources of external funding)

How to Apply:  Proposals are submitted by email to Venkatesha Basrur at: vbasrur@med.umich.edu  Please include "Pathology Pilot Project Program" in the subject line.

Budget: Projects will be awarded for $3,000 to $6,000; the maximum request is for $6,000. The Department of Pathology will provide up to two thirds ($2,000 - $4,000) of the project budget and a one third ($1,000 - $2,000) contribution is required by the PI. Exceptions to this 2:1 co-funding model may be possible for early stage investigators who do not have any significant sources of external funding. All the funds should be used to directly offset the cost of proteomic experiments.  Please check the Proteomics Facility website for cost information or contact the facility research scientist, Dr. Venkatesha (Venky) Basrur (vbasrur@med.umich.edu; tel 615-5722) with questions regarding experiment design or cost.

Review process: Pilot applications will be reviewed by a select interdepartmental committee, and a final funding decision will be made by the Center's Executive Committee.

For questions or information, please contact the PRF Director, Dr. Alexey Nesvizhskii (nesvi@med.umich.edu).

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed on a monthly basis. 



2. 
Proteomics Resource Facility Pilot Project Program

Description: Applications are invited from faculty with appointment in the Medical School for proteomics related Pilot Projects that intend to use the state-of-the-art Proteomics Resource Facility (PRF) at the University of Michigan Medical School that is led by Dr. Alexey Nesvizhskii.  The grants are intended for, but not limited to, investigators who do not yet use proteomics in their research or have not used PRF in the past.  Funds are primarily meant to help offset the cost of proteomic experiments, the results of which could potentially form the basis for or strengthen an extramural grant application.  The grant is a cost share (2/3 funded by the PRF and 1/3 by the investigator).

More information about the PRF can be found at https://www.pathology.med.umich.edu/proteomics-resource-facility

Who Can Apply: University of Michigan Medical School Faculty

Format: The application (which is designed to be as simple as possible) is not to exceed 1.5-2 pages with up to two illustrations/figures allowed if needed (Arial font 11) with the following sections:

  • Brief background
  • Purpose of proteomics experiment
  • What will follow the proteomics findings?
  • Brief budget justification
  • Potential use of proteomic data for a grant application (what type of grant, and anticipated application date)
  • References
  • NIH biosketch of PI applicant (including all sources of external funding)

How to Apply: Proposals should be submitted through Competition Space

Budget: PRF expects to fund about 10 projects for FY2017.  PRF will provide up to 2/3 of the project budget (up to $4,000 max) and the rest is required to be funded by the PI.  Exceptions to this co-funding model may be possible for early stage investigators who do not have any significant sources of external funding. All the funds should be used to directly offset the cost of proteomic experiments.  Please check the Proteomics Facility website for cost information or contact the facility research scientist, Dr. Venkatesha (Venky) Basrur (vbasrur@med.umich.edu; tel 615-5722) with questions regarding experiment design or cost.

For questions or information, please contact the PRF Director, Dr. Alexey Nesvizhskii (nesvi@med.umich.edu).

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed monthly till the FY2017 Pilot Project budget is utilized.
