One-year grants are available for research projects, shared equipment, travel/education, and enabling technology.

University of Oklahoma Center on Native Health

Pre-proposals from junior investigators due September 15, 2019

The goal of this proposed Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) is to advance inquiry into the social and behavioral determinants of the health of American Indian people in Oklahoma. A key mission of the COBRE program is to support junior project investigators with research funding, core services, and mentoring. This nascent Center is requesting pre-proposals from qualified junior investigators (tenure-track faculty without previous R01 funding) who are able to devote 6 months of effort to their proposed research project over a period of 2-3 years beginning in the fall of 2020. It is expected that junior project leaders will transition to independent research at the end of their projects, thereby contributing to the ongoing development of research on Native health at the University of Oklahoma’s campuses. Please see the Call for Proposals for additional information.
