The George M. O'Brien Kidney Translational Core Center at the University of Michigan (P30 DK081943) invites proposals for pilot and feasibility (P&F) grants involving the pathophysiology, basic mechanisms, therapeutic approaches, translational studies and clinical outcomes of chronic kidney diseases. The intent of this pilot program is to provide seed monies for researchers to obtain subsequent extramural funding. If funded, the proposed start date for the P&F grants will be January 1, 2020.
Congratulations to all who got funded!
