SECIM is committed to offering pilot and feasibility funding for projects that support the advancement of metabolomics. Please add your name to our distribution list to be notified about upcoming opportunities.
Request for Applications: Pilot and Feasibility Projects
Applications for the 2014 SECIM Pilot & Feasibility Program are open to investigators as of January 15, 2014:
SECIM is now seeking proposals for 12-month pilot projects in metabolomics. The goal of this initiative is to enhance metabolomics research by providing support for investigators new to the field, the development of new teams and partnerships, and high-risk/high-impact research. Applicants must demonstrate that proposed pilot projects will provide critical preliminary data to support new extramural grant applications. Investigators new to the field of metabolomics are especially encouraged to apply.
Investigators are required to complete all elements contained in the “Application Instructions & Cover Sheet” and “Application Forms” files listed below. Forms (in the zip folders) must be submitted in the NIH-approved PDF format provided.
