School of Medicine Pilot, Bridge and Equipment funds – The School of Medicine provides funding annually to support pilot projects, bridge grants, and equipment purchases with the aim of increasing faculty research capacity in clinical and translational areas. For more information, please contact Marla Lampp (email@example.com).
The Lab Equipment program provides one-time support of up to $50,000 to assist investigators in purchasing critically needed equipment not available in core facilities. Faculty whose primary appointments are in the School of Medicine are eligible to apply.

The Pilot Grant Program provides up to $25,000 to support new research and scholarly efforts which are likely to result in increased federal support. Preference will be given to investigators without significant funding and with a strong potential for obtaining successful external funding. However, we will consider funded investigators for applications that are distinct from his/her currently funded projects. Collaboration among faculty is strongly encouraged. The faculty submitting the application MUST BE a School of Medicine appointed faculty member. Previous applicants are eligible with appropriate justification and significant progress.
Expenditure categories for such projects are restricted to the following:

The Bridge Program provides one-time support of up to $25,000 to assist investigators in establishing or re-establishing external funding of projects which have already undergone peer review. Faculty whose primary appointments are in the School of Medicine are eligible to apply. These Principal Investigators should have submitted a project for external review and have received critiques within the last year. Priority is given to Principal Investigators who are striving to establish or re-establish funding and have already submitted grants for extramural funding/from major funding organizations. (ex. NIH, NSF,DOD,VA, et al)
