Center of Excellence in Cardiovascular Research seeking grant applicants by July 7

July 3, 2014

The Center of Excellence in Cardiovascular Research -- a joint initiative with the IU School of Medicine, Indiana University Health and the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute -- is seeking grant applications for clinical and translational cardiovascular research projects.

The maximum one-year grant funding request is $60,000 and a project must have a start date of Oct. 1 or later. The requested project period may not exceed one year.

Applicants should have an IU faculty appointment or demonstrate a close link to the IUH cardiovascular programs. IUH physicians with affiliate faculty appointment are also eligible to apply. Faculty members of the Indiana CTSI partner institutions of IU, Purdue or Notre Dame are also eligible to apply if the proposed project is linked to IUH facilities.

The participation of IUH cardiovascular service line physicians and/or IUSM faculty members is highly desirable.

Proposed research projects supported by this initiative must be relevant to cardiovascular diseases and provide information that will enhance an application for a larger subsequently-funded research activity.

A letter of intent is due July 7 to admin@indianactsi.org. Completed applications are due 5 p.m. July 28. Application forms and specific application information is available at Indiana CTSI's website.

For more application information, or to apply, visit the Indiana CTSI grants portal and enter your institutional username and password. Applications instructions are located under " Center of Excellence in Cardiovascular Research: Research Grants - 2014.07."
