  • Bridge Funding Program
  • Application Deadline:February 17, 2014
    This internal funding opportunity is a SOM Research Strategic Plan Year 1 initiative to provide support for laboratories/investigators that are extremely likely to obtain external funding to continue their research programs.The Bridge Funding program is intended for SOM faculty with an established track record of obtaining extramural funding who are experiencing an apparent temporary disruption of funding that, without institutional support, would have a substantial adverse impact on the overall long-term viability of their research program. It is not intended for faculty with multiple R01-equivalent grants if other grants have remaining years of funding or to provide pilot funds for new projects. Amount and Term: Requests for funds of ≤ $50,000 will be considered for project periods of up to 1 year. Funds are available to fund up to 5 applications contingent upon the submission of a sufficient number of scientifically meritorious applications.

     

    Applications should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file to Heather Wesling at Wesling@uthscsa.edu. Please direct questions to the SOM Research Dean’s Office.

  • SOM/IIMS Pilot Grants for Multi-Investigator Projects

    Application Deadline:February 17, 2014
    The SOM Office of the Dean and Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science (IIMS) have allocated funds to support pilot projects involving three or more investigators that will lead to the submission of applications to NIH and other funders for program projects, Centers of Excellence, and similar large awards involving multiple departments, institutes/centers, schools and collaborating institutions. This funding opportunity is a SOM Research Strategic Plan Year 1 initiative resulting from faculty feedback obtained during our strategic planning process. Applications must be submitted by groups of at least three investigators with at least two of the investigators having primary faculty appointments in the UTHSCSA SOM. A contact PI from the SOM should be identified. Faculty are encouraged to collaborate with individuals from IIMS partner organizations which include University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA), San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, San Antonio Military Health System, South Texas Veterans Health Care System, Texas Biomedical Research Institute, University Health System, University of Texas San Antonio, University of Texas Pan American, University of Texas Brownsville, University of Texas School of Public Health–San Antonio and Brownsville Regional Campuses, and University of Texas College of Pharmacy. Continuation of the program will be dependent upon the return on investment for the funded projects and the availability of funds to support the program. Amount and Term: Requests for funds of ≤ $50,000 will be considered for project periods of up to 1 year. Funds are available to fund up to 4 projects, contingent upon the submission of a sufficient number of scientifically meritorious applications. IIMS funds will support one of the projects.
