Pilot Research Grants


    The PSF Pilot Research Grant (PRG)is intended to support the research efforts of residents and junior faculty in order to address focused research questions, obtain preliminary data to support larger grant proposals in the future, and develop a line of research that can be carried forward into an academic career. This grant supports the preliminary or pilot phase of these research projects. Senior investigators are encouraged to use other funding mechanisms, but may apply for this grant only if proposing a new research concept or novel idea for which no prior funding has been obtained. Projects that are a prelude to the NIH or other external funding agencies are encouraged.
