The Office of Academic Clinical Affairs is soliciting applications for Faculty Research Development (FRD) grants that will support new or expanding interdisciplinary research that addresses significant clinical issues, is innovative, and has a high potential for return on investment. Note that clinical issues are broad and can range from strengthening clinical practice through the development of new tools and approaches, to responding to community health concerns and societal factors directly influencing public health and well-being.
Applications can encompass a continuum from laboratory research to community outreach/engagement. Up to six grants will be awarded through a competitive peer review process.
Competitive Letters of Intent are due Sept. 20, 2019.
