Redox Biology Center Pilot Project Program
The Nebraska Redox Biology Center (RBC), funded by a Center for Biomedical Research Excellence grant from the NIH, invites applications for two new grant opportunities.
Pilot Grant Program – to stimulate research in the area of redox biology and to enhance competitiveness in obtaining extramural support.
Exploratory Grant Program - to promote exploratory projects that are pursuing exceptionally creative and innovative ideas in redox biology and/or potentially affect multiple research programs of the RBC.
ELIGIBILITY: The principal investigator and another co-investigator must be members of the RBC, and each collaborative team must include at least three investigators. Collaborations across UNL/UNMC are strongly encouraged but not required. Proposed research should be based on collaboration, which may involve research cooperation, sharing of resources, and use of core facilities and services in the RBC. Only one proposal per principal investigator is permitted per competition. However, there is no limit on the number of proposals a RBC investigator may participate in as a co-investigator.
APPLICATION: The application form for pilot awards is available on this page. Application forms can also be obtained from Hannah Kahler, Administrative Coordinator, Nebraska Redox Biology Center, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, E247 Beadle Center, Lincoln, NE 68588-0662, phone 402.472.3173, fax 402.472.4961, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the inception of the RBC, 17 pilot projects have been funded; 11 were awarded to new investigators and 7 were converted or led to major funding.
