Dear Colleagues, 

We are pleased to announce the second annual University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Research Awards Ceremony. 

This ceremony celebrates faculty, staff and trainees who have made significant contributions in their field and the research community. Awards will be presented at a live celebratory event to be held on Tuesday, October 25, 2022. 

There are many award categories available to recognize faculty and staff members who have been directly involved in research as well as those who are critical to the support of the research community. 

Please take a few moments to review the award descriptions and submit a nomination for a colleague or, in some cases, a team using the nomination form button below.     

The deadline for nominations is Friday, August 26, 2022.

Applications are now open for the 2022-23 cycle of the National Postdoc Associations (NPA) IMPACT Fellowship Program (“IMPACT”). 

Launched in 2021, IMPACT increases access to opportunities for early career research trainees from marginalized communities to build skills, understand strengths, and develop networks. Each iteration of IMPACT provides a year-long fellowship for 6 to 8 early career researchers and includes peer mentorship circles and numerous external resources. 

The deadline to apply is Monday, August 1, 2022.

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

The CAMPUS Research Committee of the Integrative Medicine Center at the University of Colorado Hospital, is pleased to invite you to submit a full application for the Small Grants Program. 

Two to three grants with a maximum of $10,000 each in 2022 will be awarded. This internally funded program is designed to provide a source of funding for researchers affiliated with University of Colorado Health or the University of Colorado who have an interest in Complementary / Alternative Medicine (CAM) or Integrative Medicine research.     

The deadline for submission is Friday, September 9, 2022.   

Please submit applications and address any questions to Trudi Schmidt.

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.

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. 

Thank you for taking the time and feel free to contact with any questions.

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