RELATED DOCUMENTS:

PURPOSE

To stimulate innovative, interdisciplinary, team-based research that involves investigators from Meharry Medical College (Meharry) and University of Memphis (UofM). The Award is designed to promote new lines of research and provide seed money to give rise to future external funding. It is not intended as bridging funds or a mechanism to extend ongoing funded research.

ELIGIBILITY

To be considered for a Meharry/UofM PECIR Award, each proposal must include, at a minimum, one faculty member from each participating campus (Meharry and UofM). Adjunct and visiting faculty can participate but are not eligible to be PIs.

HOW TO LOCATE COLLABORATORS

If you are looking for a collaborator for this project, please fill out this Excel sheet and return it to cbehles@memphis.edu. The data received will be compiled into a secure, online Microsoft OneDrive document, to which access will be limited to only those who have participated. Additionally, a lightning talk networking session is scheduled for April 16th at 9:00am to help acquaint Meharry and UofM faculty. To RSVP for the lightning talk, fill out this survey. 

Once your completed Excel sheet is received, you will be sent a link to gain access to the list of investigators interested in collaborating on a PECIR Award. Once you have access, check the database often to view newly added investigators.

AWARD LEVEL

Resource funds contributed by both institutions are available for up to five (5) Awards, for up to $50,000, for one year (12 months). No-cost-extension requests will be evaluated by the Leadership Team at year-end.
