Funding Opportunity: Brancati Center Pilot Research Grant Program

The Brancati Center for the Advancement of Community Care is requesting proposals for their 2016-2017 pilot grants.  The goal of the 2016-2017 Brancati Center Pilot Research Grant Program is to support research related to substance misuse in Baltimore City. The Center seeks to fund novel but mature research plans that have potential to provide convincing data that will either (1) offer ways to immediately improve community-based care or (2) garner external funding to support more definitive work on substance use in urban settings.

The award of $25,000, for one year, is designated for pilot studies of substance.  This includes biological, genomic, social, and behavioral sciences, or effectiveness research involving dissemination and implementation. The target may include individuals, families, healthcare practitioners or systems, retail health care facilities, and/or communities. Full-time faculty in any of the Schools in the JHU system are eligible; Instructors and Assistant and early Associate Professors will be given stronger consideration.

The deadline for submission is February 1, 2017. The projected start date for these awards is April 1, 2017.
