Current Funding Opportunities and Institutional Seed Grants
Institute for Integration of Medicine & Science Clinical and Translational Science Award, Cancer Therapy & Research Center and Greehey Children's Cancer Research Institute Request for Applications – Pilot Projects
Deadlines: February 21, 2014 (Letter of Intent) & March 10, 2014 (Full Proposal)
Note - deadline for LOI extended from February 14 to February 21, 2014
UTSA faculty are eligible to apply
The Institute for Integration of Medicine & Science (IIMS), the Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC), and the Greehey Children's Cancer Research Institute (GCCRI) are soliciting proposals for pilot project awards. The primary goal of these programs is to support early-stage collaborative translational and clinical studies that will lead to increased interdisciplinary, institutional, and community-based research likely to compete successfully for national grant support and ultimately to improve human health. The programs are supported by the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) and the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as by various institutional funds.To access the Letter of Intent Form and RFA, visit: http://iims.uthscsa.edu/pilot.html

Connecting through Research Partnerships Program (Connect)
The Connecting through Research Partnerships (Connect) Program sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), is a grant opportunity offered to enhance greater scientific collaboration between the two institutions and to increase both UTSA’s and SwRI’s research-funding base with cross-campus collaborative programs. The program encourages interaction between investigators in support of the acquisitions of established extramural, peer-reviewed research funding. This agreement provides unprecedented opportunities for researchers to work together in addressing issues of mutual interest and need.
