AHC Faculty Research Development Grants are intended to support new or expanding interdisciplinary research, involving two co-PIs who are each from a different AHC college or school(dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary medicine). The primary criteria for funding are innovation, quality of the research approach, synergy of the research team, justification for the request (particularly for applications from PIs with substantial funding) and the potential for future external funding to sustain or further develop the program.
The purpose of the Fund is to provide support for early-stage ideas and creative, pioneering projects in neuroscience that otherwise may go unfunded by conventional grant-making bodies.
