Special Announcements

The Strategic Infrastructure for Research Committee (SIRC) is announcing a new pilot grant program – “Across the Finish Line” (AFL) grants — that are designed to help both junior faculty and established faculty moving into a new area of investigation. 

Funds will be used to generate pilot data that can be leveraged into a new R01-type grant submission (or re-submission). Initially, grants will be reviewed by the standing SIRC review committee. 

Priority will be given both to investigators who are perceived to have a high likelihood of funding success and to junior faculty who have limited resources available to support data generation. 

The application must be submitted by 5pm on Wednesday, August 17, 2022.   

For questions please visit the webpage or contact Peter Buttrick, MD.

Over the past several years the Movement Disorders Center (MDC) has received philanthropic donations earmarked for movement disorders-related research. The leadership of the MDC feels these funds would be best used to invest in one-year pilot projects and young investigators with the objectives of increasing the chances of success for unique projects tied to the MDC and encouraging promising young investigators to pursue careers in research.   

Please see the Request for Pilot Grant Applications for additional details.   

The application deadline is Friday, August 19, 2022.

Should you have questions, please contact

Deadline: September 16, 2022

Integrated and well-managed biomedical data is key to driving research; therefore, the Research Informatics Office (RIO) was established to coordinate and integrate data and analytic capabilities across the Anschutz Medical Campus. The newly instantiated CRIO Council aims to understand our data landscape via a survey.   

This inventory of research needs and data has several benefits to researchers: potential for better, easier, or less expensive data management solutions; improved data reuse and cost-effectiveness for commonly utilized datasets; identification of new research opportunities and collaborations; easier compliance to the new NIH data sharing policy; analytical infrastructure for research and educational use; and enabling the RIO to best support grant applications - especially program projects or data coordination centers.   

We urge you to share information regarding your needs and assets at this 10-min survey so that the Council can best plan the future of research infrastructure on the Anschutz Campus.

Please complete the survey by September 15th. 

The CRIO Council will distribute summary results by October 31st, along with plans for campus infrastructure.   

Feel free to contact with any questions.

The 2022-23 grant cycle will fund new initiatives for investigators who are pursuing joint-biology related research that should lead to NIH K/R type funding or other extramural support (e.g. foundations, industry, Department of Defense, etc.). 

All application materials for pilot projects are due October 1, 2022 by 5pm MST

See the list of past grant recipients.

This bulletin is distributed on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month for the CU Anschutz Research Community.
