Mid-Atlantic Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) Pilot and Feasibility Program


The Mid-Atlantic Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC), an NIH-funded center, is soliciting Letters of Intent to apply for Pilot and Feasibility grants of up to $50,000 (with no more than $5,000 going towards salary support for the PI or Co-I). 

The aim of all P/F projects should be to provide convincing data for future proposals to the NIH or other national agencies.  Investigators are encouraged to undertake high risk/high gain projects that have the potential to develop but for which no preliminary data of feasibility are currently available.

All applicants must be willing to actively participate in Mid-Atlantic NORC Center activities, including seminars, workshops, and symposia, and to present at NORC seminars describing their work.


Letters of intent are due by noon, Monday, March 4, 2019.
