CHIP is pleased to announce a new UCHC-UConn Storrs Seed Grant Opportunity in Cancer Control and increased funding for the CHIP Seed Grants for Obesity Research and eHealth/mHealth Research.
The new UCHC-UConn Storrs Seed Grant Opportunity in Cancer Control is sponsored by the Dean of the UConn School of Medicine, the UConn Vice President for Research, and CHIP. This initiative will fund three dual-PI grants of $35,000 each and is open to research teams consisting of one PI from UCHC and one from UConn Storrs (UConn Storrs includes the regional campuses). Letters of intent from the dual-PI teams are due no later than January 17, 2014.
In addition, we have recently secured additional funds from the Vice President for Research and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for the previously-announced CHIP Seed Grant Funding Opportunities, for which only CHIP affiliates are eligible. The revisions are as follows:
- CHIP Seed Grants for eHealth/mHealth Research: Proposals may now request up to a maximum of $15,000 (previously $10,000). Letters of intent are due no later than December 6, 2013.
- CHIP Seed Grants for Obesity Research: Proposals may now request up to a maximum of $15,000 (previously $10,000). Letters of intent are due no later than December 6, 2013.
