Pilot funding from ONPRC; letters of intent due March 12

The Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) is soliciting proposals for its annual
pilot research program. The award encourages activities related to the use of nonhuman primates for biomedical research or for studies enhancing the welfare or husbandry of nonhuman primates. Pilot research should be developmental or high‐risk and should be used to generate preliminary data in support of applications for further project support, such as NIH, other federal, or foundation grants.

Pilot grant applicants need not be ONPRC core scientists; however, if a non‐core scientist is
the PI, a core scientist must be involved in the planning, execution, and supervision of the award. This 2014 solicitation is for one‐year projects at a suggested maximum budget of $75,000.

Letters of intent are due March 12, 2014, and full applications (if invited) are due April 11, 2014. View the full program announcement for more information.
