The KUMC Research Institute is pleased to announce the availability of grant funds for research conducted by faculty members of the University of Kansas Medical Center at Kansas City and Wichita. Funding for this program is derived from Research Institute income and through the generosity of external philanthropic programs.The objective of the Clinical Pilot Research program is to provide support to promote research development in a highpriorityarea for funding nationally and to stimulate multidisciplinary teams with broad internal support.
The initiative for the program is broad in scope. The type of research may include, but is not limited to, outcomes, applied, translational, human populations, human specimens, and/or human subjects. Therefore, outside of the emphasis on pilot clinical research, the particular scope will be defined by the faculty member.
All faculty at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City and Wichita are eligible to apply, if their applications meet the following criteria. Adjunct faculty with primary appointments in another university may be coinvestigators, but may not submit a proposal as Principal Investigator.
The proposal is to follow the basic NIH format and include the following PHS-398 (Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Services) grant application form:
The Research Committee strongly recommends that a grant-writing course be taken prior to submission of a Clinical Pilot proposal in order to achieve high quality that will successfully compete at the NIH level. The Research Committee also strongly recommends that the proposal be reviewed and recommended by the respective research committee of the applicant's school; those grants will be given higher priority.
Projects should be designed for completion in one year. The review criteria for this RFP are essentially the same as those used by Federal agencies, such as NIH, NSF and the Department of Education:
The Research Committee will seek national level peer-review of these proposals. Applicants may submit the names of three (3) peers they wish to have excluded from the review process. This is being allowed to avoid selection of someone with whom the applicant does not wish to share the proposal.
The Research Committee will make the final determination based in part on the critiques submitted through the external peer-review process.
All proposals are to be submitted electronically in either a WORD or PDF format via e-mail to RIGRANTS@kumc.edu. Incomplete proposal applications will not be accepted.
