Roybal Center Call for Pilot Project Pre-Proposals, due August 10, 2018

The Johns Hopkins Roybal Center (JHRC) is funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) to support the translation of behavioral and social sciences research into applied practices and programs for older adults. The theme of the JHRC is to support research aimed at strengthening informal support resources of older adults, and, when feasible, to do so using innovative methodological advances.  All NIH Roybal Centers are up for renewal at this time.

Pre-Proposal: The center is seeking1 page “Pre-proposals” from potential pilot project PIs or investigative teams who may be interested in partnering for the competitive renewal.

Eligibility: Any faculty member at Johns Hopkins University is invited to submit a pre-proposal. Junior investigators (e.g., instructors, research scientists, assistant professors, early associate professors) are especially encouraged to submit, and more senior investigators who are extending their work into the social or behavioral sciences are also encouraged to consider this potential funding mechanism. Postdoctoral fellows who are likely to obtain a faculty position at Johns Hopkins within the next year are also eligible to submit pre-proposals.

Applications are due Friday, August 10.
