Pilot Projects / Funding Opportunities
Cleveland Foundation Internal New Investigator Research Award (INIRA)
Deadline: 9/2/2014 (Prior to Midnight) - 0 Day(s) Left
One critical component of a successful career in academic medicine is the ability to obtain extramural research funding. In the current fiscal environment, obtaining peer-reviewed extramural funding is becoming increasingly difficult. To facilitate the research career development of new faculty investigators (at the Instructor and Assistant Professor level) in the Department of Oncology, we have created a fund from a generous gift from the Cleveland Foundation. This fund will cover salary and fringe benefits, as well as research costs, for junior faculty who need financial support while working to obtain extramural research support. Allocations from this fund are based on a competitive application process which is closely tied to efforts to obtain stable extramural research support. Thus, early career investigators who have submitted a research proposal to NIH, DOD, or the equivalent, but who have not yet obtained funding, are eligible to apply.

Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center 2014
Deadline: 9/5/2014 5:00 PM - 2 Day(s) Left
The Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center at Johns Hopkins is pleased to announce that funding is available for a limited number of novel developmental research programs (pilot projects) in the study of adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. This program funds important new pilot projects with promising translational potential that do not have sufficient data for an independently funded NIH grant. Projects of high priority should focus on new research directions, explore innovative ideas, test unconventional, but potentially important, new hypotheses, or ascertain the feasibility of new research approaches. Applications are due Friday, September 5, 2014 at 5:00 p.m.

The Johns Hopkins Greenberg Bladder Cancer Institute Bladder Cancer Research Fund
Deadline: 9/29/2014 (Prior to Midnight) - 26 Day(s) Left
Through a co-investment of Erwin L. Greenberg and his wife Stephanie Cooper Greenberg and the Johns Hopkins University the Johns Hopkins Greenberg Bladder Cancer Institute has been created. The mission of the JHGBCI is to develop new clinical strategies for combating bladder cancer through intensive, collaborative, and innovative research. Research grants are the primary mechanism through which the JHGBCI advances the state of the science, and thereby clinical practice, in bladder cancer. The Institute welcomes proposals across all departments of within and outside of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Grants will be awarded in the JHGBCl's areas of research focus (Genetic and Epigenetic Approaches, lmmunotherapy, Targeted Therapies), patient care, prevention and screening, as well as in a flexible category that affords the Institute latitude to support innovative "out of the box" studies (Pioneering Studies). The funding structure for JHGBCI grants is designed to encourage new investigators, support pilot and exploratory projects, leverage existing resources and expertise. Grants will provide $35,000 to $50,000 per year, with possible renewal for up to three years.

Faculty Pilot Grants in Global Health Research
Deadline: 10/20/2014 (Prior to Midnight) - 47 Day(s) Left
The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health provides pilot grants to faculty at Johns Hopkins to enable and support global health research projects. The prime purpose of these awards is to strengthen the individual’s ability to secure subsequent funding from current sources. We plan to award up to nine $50,000 grants per year, depending upon the number of fundable applications and availability of funds.
