One of the newest grant programs offered by the OVPR gives Baylor faculty a chance to collaborate with colleagues at other area institutions on biomedical research aimed at developing treatments for conditions that impact people around the world.
The Collaborative Faculty Research Investment Program (CFRIP) is funded by the OVPR and counterpart offices at the Baylor College of Medicine, Baylor Health Care System and Baylor Scott & White Health. The program awards research grants to teams of faculty from two or more participating institutions with the goal of leveraging complementary research capabilities to help the partnerships compete for external research funding.
Prospective investigators may request up to $25,000 in funding from each participating institution. Proposals are due at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 22, 2015 for projects to be performed during the 2016 fiscal year (specific project dates may vary based on the fiscal years of the participating institutions).
If you are interested in applying, contact the Scott & White Healthcare Office of Academic Research Development (OARD) to request an application.
