Gallery of Awardees

Faculty who have been awarded external grants of $100,000/yr. or more in direct costs are recognized in the Gallery of Awardees. Besides celebrating our successful investigators, a brief synopsis of the award goals and pictures of the faculty are included on the announcement so that other faculty interested in potential collaborations or seminars by our researchers can contact them.*It may take 2-3 months before the Gallery of Awardees recognizes new awards due to the processing of data.

Grant Writing Support

Grant Pre-Review ($200 for internal reviewers, $300-$500 for external reviewers)- Applications due: Rolling deadline. CoM Grant Pre-Review Program supports the refinement of scientific projects and grantsmanship of proposals from CoM faculty prior to official submission of a grant application to a funding agency. Faculty may submit grants to be reviewed at any time during the year.  However, applications need to be submitted 60 days prior to the actual grant deadline to allow for a thoughtful review and time to respond to the suggestions by the reviewers. 

R Club Grant Program- The purpose of this program is to assist early career/junior investigators in the preparation of their first R01 proposal to improve grantsmanship by promoting clarity of thought and logical presentation of a research proposal so as to have the greatest impact on fundability.
