The Great Plains IDeA-CTR network is excited to announce a funding opportunity. The grant will be awarded at the GP IDeA-CTR Annual Scientific Meeting on October 23, 2019. Funding will be awarded to an innovative research project based on criteria delineated below.

The goal is to raise awareness of clinical and translational research conducted by promising scholars who are developing innovative tools and methods for medical research.

In addition, we ask that applicants provide a biosketch for PI and all key personnel. Please review the RFA documentation for complete details here.

Finalists will present projects at the annual meeting in October. The winner will receive up to $20,000 (direct costs) for one year, and access to resources of the GP IDeA-CTR to support these research efforts.
