Pilot and Feasibility Projects

This is the pilot grant page. Anyone can apply for a pilot grant at the metabolomic center if they want to study metabolomics.

West Coast Metabolomics Center - Pilot and Feasibility Projects

One of the most important goals of the West Coast Metabolomics Center is to rapidly advance metabolomics research by providing funds to support novel projects and challenging ideas proposed by scientists throughout the United States, in particular along the West Coast.

Projects have been funded 2012-2017. Projects and awards are listed below. No further call will be issued.

 

      UC Davis Genome Center Pilot and Feasibility Projects

      The Genome Center is soliciting applications for up to five small metabolomic pilot grants per year for up to $2,000 per project. Such grants are available for Principal Investigators located at UC Davis, but outside regional scientists are not eligible. In a similar manner like the West Coast Metabolomics Center pilot projects, the intent of such startup grants is to obtain data for NIH grant submissions. Project submissions can be sent any time to ofiehn@ucdavis.edu; reviews will be scored by NIH criteria (significance, investigator, innovation, approach, environment). Leveraging with other funding mechanisms, including other Genome Center core pilot grants, is most welcome.

      The 2017 call for UC Davis pilot & feasibility proposals on "stable isotope tracer studies" is open now !

      UC Davis campus has supplemented the pilot and feasibility program with another opportunity that is exclusively focused on UC Davis investigators. This call is open to establish a UC Davis community for stable isotope tracer research in biology, chemistry, biomedical / clinical research, engineering or related sciences. Please see here the call, and download here the template for proposal submission.
      Deadline for submission is March 16, 2017 with a project start by April 1st, 2017.
