Mar. 28, 2013

The following list includes new and competing research awards received from December 2012 to February 2013, excluding commercial projects. Amounts shown are based on the first budget period/year.

These monthly reported are provided by the IU School of Medicine Office of Operations' Research Administration group. The previous grant award update to appear in InScope, formerly Scope, was published on Dec. 13, 2012, due to a delay caused by the university's transition to a new research administration system.

Monthly updated will resume starting this month.
