Opioid and Pain Management Pilot Grant Opportunity

Letter of Intent (LOI) Request for Applications (RFA)- Fall 2018

TRI is pleased to invite applications for a special Opioid and Pain Management Pilot Grant Opportunity.  The purpose of this pilot grant opportunity is for faculty members to form new teams to generate data necessary to submit competitive grant proposals in response to NIH, other federal agencies, and foundation grant funding opportunities for opioid and pain management research.

Budgets up to $25,000 will be considered. A review of the budgeting will be part of the funding decision, and applications with less than the maximum budget are encouraged. All projects must be completed within one year.

Priority will be given to projects: 1) likely to ultimately obtain extramural funding; 2) that obtain critical data to better position the research team for future funding; 3) likely to facilitate new, multi-disciplinary research collaborations. These awards will NOT support projects that are minor offshoots of ongoing research by a funded investigator or that simply provide bridge funding to previously funded investigators.
