In anticipation of third year funding, the Center for Host-Pathogen Interactions at the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences invites applications for pilot studies to support research that fits within the scientific theme of our NIH-funded Center For Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE). This competition is open to all full-time, tenured, tenure-track, research-track, and/or clinical-track faculty at UND. The goal of this Pilot Project Program is to promote new research in the field of host-pathogen interactions and extend the current research into novel directions with high potential for future COBRE projects and for acquiring R-grant type extramural funding support. It is expected that this program will attract investigators into the research area of host-pathogen interactions, foster new collaborations among new and existing investigators, and promote the utilization of flow cytometry, imaging, human cell core, and histopathology core facilities supported by COBRE.
Applications are due February 15, 2018, for an anticipated project start date of June 1, 2018. For more information, see the full call for proposals here.
