CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

2018 Competition

The SNPRC Pilot Research Program provides opportunities and support for investigators to use SNPRC nonhuman primate resources in highly focused, short-term studies with a high likelihood of enhancing the value, utility, feasibility and attractiveness of nonhuman primates for biomedical research.

High priority is given to studies that propose to generate preliminary data for applications to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support future research projects. Other studies that are considered responsive to the program’s goals include those that propose to develop new nonhuman primate models of disease, or develop and/or test new research methods, instrumentation or approaches for biomedical research using nonhuman primates.

The SNPRC Pilot Research Program accepts grant applications once per year. Reviews are conducted by a committee of SNPRC and external reviewers. Funding commences in May.

Applicants should review this information thoroughly as the terms of the pilot grants and the application process have changed.
