Request for applications: 2018 SECIM Pilot and Feasibility Projects

SECIM now accepting applications for the 2018 SECIM Pilot & Feasibility Program.

The Southeast Center for Integrated Metabolomics (SECIM) requests applications for 12-month pilot projects. Awards are intended to support projects that will provide preliminary data for new extramural grant application submissions. The review process will emphasize innovation and the potential of the work to have a significant impact on an important research problem. Proposals of up to $50,000 in total costs will be accepted. SECIM is dedicated to funding as many unique and innovative projects as possible with goals of expanding the center’s capabilities and enhancing the metabolomics research capacity across the nation. Budget requests for salary for the Principal Investigator or personnel, laboratory or extramural services outside of SECIM, travel, and indirect costs are not allowable. All funds will be awarded in credit toward SECIM services, including study design and some statistical support, or in payment for the project’s materials and supplies. Awarded amount will not change hands; funds will stay within SECIM as a credit towards the awardee’s project.
