At MedStar Health, we are committed to creating a learning healthcare environment that fosters and supports research. To support this effort, we are pleased to announce two (2) intramural grant funding opportunities that are now open.

These research funding announcements have been developed to increase collaboration, support new investigators, and enhance the quality of care to our communities.

Questions about the application process should be directed to [email protected]. You can learn more about previous grant recipients for both these funding opportunities here.

The 2018 New Investigator – Associate Giving Grant Fund

This grant opportunity made possible by our annual associate giving campaign. This grant fund benefits a MedStar Health new investigator (faculty/attending level (i.e., no longer in a training program) within 5 years of joining any MedStar Health entity.

We all know the first years are so important and this grant opportunity will provide support to initiate research and do pilot studies that can lead to building a robust research activity that will be competitive for external funding. Therefore, it is the goal of this fund to help provide seed funding which would lead to external grant funding. The proposal budget must not exceed $25,000 direct costs. There are no indirect costs associated with this grant opportunity. The proposed budget can be used for any study-related expenses necessary to complete the proposed investigation (e.g., salary, supplies, equipment, etc.).

These awards are intended to support particularly innovative and transformational ideas that have the potential to have an exceptional impact on diabetes.
