Translational Research Development Grants
Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine launched a new internal funding mechanism in the 2013-14 academic year. The Translational Research Development Grant Program will provide a mechanism to link basic scientists with clinician-investigators. It will promote, cultivate and establish innovative translational clinical research programs that have a high probability of attracting external funding and/or have potential for the generation of intellectual property and commercialization. Proposals must identify at least one basic scientist and one clinician-investigator as Co-Principal Investigators. See the guidelines.
The Translational Research Development Grant Program replaces all previous BSOM Seed Grant programs (Emerging Science, Medical Education Research, Genomics, and Proteomics).
From time to time there may be a limited amount of funds available to provide Bridge Grants to highly productive investigators, with a strong track record of external grant funding, who find themselves in between grants. The purpose of these Bridge Grants is to provide the investigator with sufficient funds to allow work to continue in their laboratory in order to secure the next round of external grant funding. Specific application process and terms apply. Please contact the Office of Research Affairs to schedule a meeting with the associate dean to discuss the application process.
Matching Funds for Equipment
The Action Fund, a program of the Ohio Board of Regents, offers matching funds for equipment costing at least $250,000.
