2017 Special RFA on “NUTRITION, OBESITY and CANCER”
Currently Accepting: Letters of Intent
Deadline: 9/5/2017
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.
