Call for Pilot Proposals
FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR PILOT STUDIES
THE RESEARCH IN PALLIATIVE AND END-OF-LIFE COMMUNICATION AND TRAINING (RESPECT) CENTER
The Research in Palliative and End-of-Life Communication and Training (RESPECT) Center is pleased to announce a call for pilot proposals intended to facilitate the development of research focused on improved communication and decision-making for patients facing serious or advanced illness. We will award funding for one pilot project, up to $15,000, with a starting date of July 1, 2017. Applicants are encouraged to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to Laura Holtz, RESPECT Center project manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1, 2017. Pilot grant proposals are due Friday, March 31, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. (EST).
The RESPECT Center was funded under the IUPUI Signature Center Initiative in July 2010 with support from the School of Nursing, School of Medicine (Division of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics), the IU Simon Cancer Center, and Clarian Health System. The mission of the RESPECT Center is to build a collaborative, interdisciplinary scientific community of researchers and clinicians to work together to advance the science of communication in palliative and end-of-life care across the lifespan. The goal of the pilot study is to generate preliminary data that will facilitate investigators competing successfully for extramural research funding.
All teaching and research faculty with an academic appointment at IUPUI, and who are qualified to apply for NIH funding, are eligible to apply for this pilot grant opportunity. Preference will be given to new investigators and to research that fosters transdisciplinary collaboration.
Please contact Laura Holtz at email@example.com and/or 317-274-9114 with any questions.
