Faculty Research Development grants are intended to support new or expanding interdisciplinary research which addresses significant clinical issues, is innovative and has a high potential for return on investment. Note that clinical issues are broad; they can range from strengthening clinical practice through the development of new tools and approaches, to responding to community health concerns and societal factors directly influencing public health and well-being. Applications can encompass a continuum from laboratory research to community-engaged/community-based research.
