News for Researchers

Posted September 1, 2022 by Dan Moser

Letters of intent are due Sept. 16 for two funding opportunities open to investigators from all University of Nebraska campuses and other institutions from the Great Plains IDeA-CTR Network. 

The network will provide Team Research Pilot Grants of up to $75,000 in direct costs for existing clinical and translational research teams or projects that address public health research. Single investigators are not eligible for this funding; instead there must be evidence of a team-based approach inviting two or more principal investigators from different disciplines. 

The Great Plains IDeA-CTR Network also is seeking letters of intent for its Tech Transfer Pilot Grant, which will offer up to $50,000 in direct costs for a one-year project focused on translation of intellectual property into clinical or community applications.  

Letters of intent for both programs are due by 5 p.m. Sept. 16. Those invited to submit full applications will be notified by Sept. 21, with solicited applications due Nov. 18.  

The Great Plains IDeA-CTR is a collaboration of eight institutions eligible for funding: Boys Town National Research Hospital, Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, Creighton University, Omaha VA Medical Center, University of Nebraska Kearney, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska Medical Center and University of Nebraska Omaha.
