Thursday, September 4, 2014

Before leaving to head the Institute of Medicine, former Chancellor Victor J. Dzau approved a two-year pilot of a new internal funding opportunity to provide financial support to research teams at the Schools of Medicine and Nursing who are developing collaborative research programs. In this pilot phase, the new program is limited to teams intending to submit to currently active National Institutes of Health (NIH) P01, P50, U19, and/or U54 funding opportunities.
