Mid-Atlantic Nutrition Obesity Research Center Pilot & Feasibility Program

The aim of a P/F project is to provide convincing data for future proposals to the NIH or other national agencies. Investigators are encouraged to undertake high risk/high gain projects that have the potential to develop but for which no preliminary data of feasibility are currently available. Nevertheless, the capability of the PI (and his/her collaborators) to undertake such a project should be clearly outlined. P/F projects are strongly encouraged to take advantage of our Core laboratories. These are: 1) Administrative Core, including Biostatistics and Medical Informatics (BMI) Subcore; 2) Clinical and Translational Research (CTR) Core; 3) Biological Mechanisms and Functional Genomics (BMFG) Core; and 4) Molecular Genetics and Nutrigenomics (MGN) Core. Information on these cores can be found at our web site: http://medschool.umaryland.edu/norc/cores.asp. All applicants must be willing to actively participate in Mid-Atlantic NORC Center activities, including seminars, workshops, and symposia, and to present NORC seminars describing their work. Each P/F awardee will be assigned a working group and must be willing to meet regularly with the working group (2-4 times per year, depending on progress). Letter of Intent due by May 1, 2017. Applicants for these awards must be faculty at an academic institution affiliated with the Mid-Atlantic NORC.
