The Prominence-to-Preeminence (P2PE) STEM Targeted Initiative, Immunology, Imaging, and Informatics for Precision ImmunoMedicine (iPRIME) in Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD) announces a call for collaborative seed grant proposals to support innovative projects that will contribute to UVA’s preeminence in precision immunomedicine in CVD. To catalyze multidisciplinary research, iPRIME encourages applications from UVA faculty from at least two different departments and schools.
The Faculty Seed Fund is designed to support innovative interdisciplinary projects in precision immunomedicine for cardiovascular disease. We seek proposals from new teams of faculty from different disciplines who will use their expertise to answer novel questions regarding the immune system as it relates to cardiovascular disease, with the hopes of designing and implementing new treatments for patients. Proposals may budget up to $50,000 per year for two years, and the hope is that initial seed funding will lead to extramural funding for these teams.
Application deadline is October 17, 2022 by 5:00pm. The initial round of funds will be released in December of 2022.
