UAMS Research Academy

New FUNDED Program- DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 3/27 @5:00 p.m.

Established by the division of Research and Innovation in 2020, the mission of the Research Academy is to build a sustainable research community and elevate research excellence at UAMS. It aspires to create innovative care models and transformative breakthroughs in medicine. This mission aligns with UAMS Vision 2029 to make Arkansas the healthiest state in the region.

As our first initiative, Research and Innovation has partnered with the Translational Research Institute to launch a Mentored Grant-Writing Program for its Research Academy Scholars. The goal of this initiative is to expand research grant success through a structured grant-writing program and dedicated expert mentorship.

The first class of Research Academy Scholars will consist of up to 8 UAMS faculty members who are targeting an October 2020, R01 proposal submission. Approximately one half of selected Scholars will be working in clinical and translational research. The program is free for Scholars and offers research voucher incentives for mentors who participate.
