The Clinical Effectiveness & Patient Safety (CEPS) Grant Program, now within the Institute for Healthcare Quality, Safety and Efficiency (IHQSE), is seeking submissions for the AY22-23 grant cycle

The IHQSE CEPS Grant Program provides funding for quality and patient safety initiatives that put evidence into practice and implement innovative process changes to improve patient outcomes and healthcare value. 

Eligibility is open to faculty, trainees and staff at Children’s Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado Hospital with funding up to $25,000 for faculty and staff and up to $10,000 for trainees.

Post-Doctoral Research Training Support

The Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes in the Department of Medicine at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is now accepting applications to provide salary support for post-doctoral research training in metabolism, obesity and type 2 diabetes. 

Individuals with PhD, MD, or DO degrees are welcome to apply. During the period of support trainees will have the opportunity to work in mentor-based research with one of the many investigators that do studies using model systems that extend from genetic studies in flies, mechanistic studies in animals and humans to interventional studies in people with diabetes or obesity and epidemiological studies in populations across the lifespan. 

Trainees will have the opportunity to take part in a range of seminars, workshops and specialized training opportunities. A central resource for trainees is the NIH funded Colorado Nutrition Obesity Research Center which supports a number of core labs and has a pilot project program that supports the work of junior investigators.

Applications will be reviewed by the Recruitment Committee and awardees notified in mid-April. 

Contact Dr. Bessesen if you have any questions about eligibility, your mentor, or your proposed area of research. 

The deadline for application submission is Monday, March 28th, 2022.  Submit your completed application to Kyle Bishop.
