The University of Iowa Injury Prevention Research Center (UI IPRC) funded by the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of funds to support pilot projects. The mission of the UI IPRC is to support multidisciplinary academic and community efforts to prevent and control traumatic injuries and violence, especially among rural populations.
The University of Iowa Injury Prevention Research Center's UI IPRC Pilot Grant Program
The primary objective of the pilot project grant program is to encourage the development of new injury and violence prevention research projects and attract new investigators to the field. The UI IPRC is particularly interested in interdisciplinary pilot projects with a focus on injuries among rural populations; however, all injury and violence prevention projects will be considered. Projects that align with the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) priority areas are strongly suggested. More information about these priority areas can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/injury/priority/index.html. Priority is given to pilot proposals that hold greatest potential for leading to a larger research proposal.
Eligibility- All applicants must be affiliated with the University of Iowa. Applicants from the Colleges of Engineering, Liberal Arts & Sciences, Medicine, and Public Health are highly encouraged to submit a proposal. Faculty members across all ranks and tracks and scientific staff are eligible. Postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are eligible to apply but must have a faculty sponsor who will oversee the research. A letter of support/commitment from the faculty sponsor must accompany the proposal.
