Funding Entity: LA CaTS
Max. Award: $50,000.00
Contact: info@lacats.org

The LA CaTS Center is seeking research applications to support highly innovative projects aimed at preparing major publications and grant applications to compete for extramural funding (e.g. NIH, DOD, or Foundations). The 2017 round will favor applications from junior investigators, and applications must include a mentoring component. These projects should address biological, epidemiological or clinical issues related to specific diseases that have a high prevalence among the population of Louisiana, including, but not limited to, obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and HIV/AIDS. The program will support research activities and will also provide eligible pilot projects with access to scientific, statistical and regulatory cores to facilitate their development.

2017 Special RFA on “NUTRITION, OBESITY and CANCER”
Currently Accepting: Applications
Deadline: 10/16/2017
Funding Entity: Nutrition Obesity Research Center
Award: $30,000.00-$60,000.00
Contact: norc@pbrc.edu

Approximately $60,000 is available to fund one or two P&F grants around the theme of nutrition, obesity and cancer. The major objective of this program is to provide research support to develop preliminary data and/or potential novel approaches (methods) from pairs of investigators with one investigator from LSU-HSC in New Orleans (cancer expertise) and the other from Pennington Biomedical (obesity expertise). The hope for a Pilot and Feasibility Award is that it will generate enough preliminary data for the investigator(s) to obtain research funding by conventional mechanisms (e.g., R01). This program needs to have at least one of the 2 investigators (either from LSU-HSC or from PBRC) to be a young investigator while the other can be more a mentor in the execution of the scientific proposal.
