Deadline: December 31, 2016
We invite applications from Einstein faculty members seeking seed funding to provide preliminary data for the development of extramural grant applications. For full details, view the Catalytic Seed Grants document.
Awards of up to $5,000 will be provided to faculty investigators who require new data to generate novel hypotheses. Funds must be used for projects that propose using Einstein Shared Facilities, particularly ICTR cores.
Applications must be planned in consultation with the director(s) of the core service(s) requested, who will help develop and approve the requested budget. Funds may not be used to purchase equipment or for salary support. Projects supported under this program must be clinical or translational in design or implementation.
Applications for seed funding may fall into one of four categories (priority for funding will be given to the first three as they are key areas of ICTR and institutional investments):
All applications must be submitted electronically https://www.einstein.yu.edu/centers/ictr/. Requests will be considered as they are received, and will be reviewed within 2-3 weeks of submission by the ICTR Executive Committee. Funding decisions will not be accompanied by written reviews.
