Currently Accepting: Applications
Deadline: 4/30/2020
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 2020 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.

Award: $25,000.00-$75,000.00
Contact: cobre@pbrc.edu

Purpose: Funds are available to support 4 to 8 P&F grants from the Pennington COBRE. Clinical/translational or basic science proposals may request budgets from $25,000 to $75,000. The major objective of this program is to provide research support to test innovative hypotheses regarding metabolic diseases. Faculty at PBRC, as well as their collaborators at sister institutions within the LSU system are eligible to apply to this P&F program. The COBRE will give its highest priority to research related to obesity and diabetes, including excellent projects that relate to this global theme through nutritional interventions or preventive medicine approaches. The proposed research could involve some aspect of nutrient absorption, nutrient metabolism, cellular nutrient sensing or signaling, genetics of nutrition-related chronic diseases, brain and peripheral regulation of caloric and nutrient intake, and studies of energy metabolism and energy expenditure.
