Portland Alcohol Research Center – Pilot project research proposals, due Aug. 24

The Portland Alcohol Research Center (PARC) expects to fund up to three pilot research projects in 2013 of up to $30,000 each. PARC is especially interested in encouraging investigators new to alcohol research to submit applications. Proposals will be funded based on scientific merit, relevance to center goals, and the likelihood that findings will lead to submission of an R-type grant application. Pilot proposals that focus on the neuroadaptation to ethanol exposure and those with relevance to behavioral genomics are especially welcome.

All OHSU faculty (assistant professor or above) interested in alcohol research are invited to submit pilot project proposals. The proposals can outline new projects or projects that were previously submitted but not funded, as long as they are suitably revised.

Applications are due no later than noon, Friday, August 24, 2012. The funding target start date is January 1, 2013.
