Pilot and Exploratory Studies Core
The Claude D Pepper Older Americans Independence Center is
pleased to announce the release of two funding opportunities released through
our Pilot and Exploratory Studies Core (PESC). Details are provided below and
in the links provided.
PESC Annual RFA
The goal of this RFA is to identify proposals that focus on
understanding and/or intervening on pathways contributing to age-related
functional decline and the development of physical disability in older
persons. We have recently completed our most recent round of competitive pilot funding. Please check back for an upcoming RFA in the near future.
Ignition Fund RFA
The goal of this RFA is to seek out proposals for small
pilot/ ignition funds to accelerate progress for clinical and translational
research projects related to the Pepper Themes, preserving or improving of
physical function in older adults. Ignition funds are intended to be small (up
to $5,000), rapid-access awards that will support feasibility & pilot
projects with high probability of generating pilot data for submission of
larger extramural grant applications and/or high impact publications. Full details can be found here.
All inquiries for both RFAs should be sent
directly to Abby Archer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Research and Career Development Core
An RFA for junior faculty applicants will be released at a later time. Contact Abby Archer at 336-713-8504 or email@example.com for more information.
