We anticipate awarding supplemental research funds to junior faculty who have currently existing independent extramural support, but who have not received an R01 equivalent. Requests for up to $10,000 will be considered which can be used for salary, fringe, tuition and supplies/animals as needed and as allowed by the applicant’s current support mechanism. Awards will be announced at a subsequent MBI Research Evening event which recipients will be expected to attend. Awardees who make substantial progress in the first year of funding will be considered for a second year of funding.
