Congratulations to the Emory University Research Committee and Georgia CTSA 2018 Grant Recipients
Emory University Research Committee and Georgia CTSA 2018 Grant Recipients
All applications for the joint University Research Committee (URC) and Georgia CTSA awards must meet the following criteria:
1) The proposed research includes a significant (if not complete) focus on translational or patient-oriented research
2) Patient-oriented research involves human subjects or primary biological samples from human subjects
3) Translational research may involve any type of translation, (T1, T2, T3, or T4) and should include a discussion of the type of translation
4) The use of animal models is allowable
5) Proposals that use only cell lines derived from human tissue are not eligible for these awards.
The URC, a standing committee of the Emory Faculty Council, is responsible for awarding small research grants to the faculty of Emory University. The program is intended to support research and creative projects of faculty in fields for which there is little or no external funding or to explore new areas of research that are likely to attract outside support. Applications are solicited regularly from all regular, full-time Emory faculty members. Proposals received are reviewed by six broad discipline-based subcommittees, composed of faculty members of the University. In addition, a committee is dedicated to "interdisciplinary research."
