The Obesity, Cardiorenal and Metabolic Disease Center (OCMDC) at the University of Mississippi Medical Center offers pilot project grants through the Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE). These pilot grants are intended to assist new investigators in generating sufficient data to be competitive for extramural funding. A focus on obesity, cardiorenal, or metabolic diseases is required. Please refer to the description of the overall program on the home page.
Pilot grants will be awarded at $20,000 for 1 year. Eligible applicants cannot currently be Principal Investigator or previously have been Principal Investigator on a PO1 or RO1 type NIH grant or an equivalent NSF grant.
Submit all pieces of the application together at one time via email to Gerry McAlpin.
IRB or IACUC approvals are not required to submit a pilot grant application, but will be required before the proposal is funded.
