Pathogen Genomics Program
Genomics Pilot Funding
The Institute for Human Infections and Immunity is pleased to announce the availability of seed funds for pathogen genomics and other infectious disease and immunology initiatives involving next generation sequencing. Applicants must be IHII members and may request a one-time award of up to $5,000 to cover reagents and sequencing costs in the Sealy Center for Molecular Medicine Next Generation Sequencing Core Facility and/or the GNL Assay Development Service Division.
To apply, an abstract of no more than 400 words, along with a budget and biosketches of key personnel, should be sent to Dr. Andrew McNees (email@example.com). Applications should explain how the sequence data will be used to develop new projects or extend existing projects and lead to external grant funding. Applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with Dr. Naomi Forrester in the IHII Pathogen Genomics Program for assistance in planning and budgeting their project. There is no deadline for applications, but the review of proposals will begin on June 15, 2012, and will continue until the available funds are exhausted. It is not yet known if additional funding will be available next fiscal year (beyond August 2012.)
Questions should be directed to Dr. Naomi Forrester.
