Georgia Tech has been invited to submit a proposal for the 2014 V Foundation Translational Grant. The purpose of these grants is to develop novel approaches to the prevention, detection and treatment of human cancer that requires collaboration of investigators from both the lab and clinic.
The V Foundation Translational Grant is a $600,000 award funded at $200,000 per year, over a three-year period. Ten percent of the grant annually may be used to offset the indirect costs of the project. The project team must have a minimum of two scientists from the same facility, and the team must possess basic and clinical research expertise.
As Georgia Tech may only submit one (1) proposal, the EVPR Office has issued a Call for Internal GT Pre-Proposals.
Full proposals are due to the V Foundation by May 13, 2014. Georgia Tech faculty interested in being considered to submit a full proposal to the Foundation, should submit the following to Susan Roche (email@example.com), as one pdf, by Monday, April 14:
An internal GT Pre-Proposal outline, not to exceed three (3) pages including:
- Project Title
- PI/Co-PI(s) Name(s) and Affiliation(s)
- Proposed Research Description addressing: specific aims, hypothesis, background, significance, and proposed methods including statistical analysis
The following internal GT Pre-Proposal Attachments, are also required to be included in the single pdf file, but are not included in page limit above:
- Budget in NIH format
- CVs for PI/Co-PIs, which detail any relevant intra- or inter-institutional collaboration on past research projects
Please forward this message to anyone else who may be interested, and contact Susan Roche at 404.894.8802 or firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions or concerns.
