Collaborative Biomedical Research (CBR) Program
Call for Proposals due April 17, 2012 by 4:30 PM
The Collaborative Biomedical Research Program funds basic research collaborations between Baystate Medical Center clinicians and University of Massachusetts Amherst faculty. Eligible research projects must have two Co-Principal Investigators, one each from UMass Amherst and Baystate Medical Center.
CBR Research Grants are intended to serve as "seed funds" to help the collaborative team develop preliminary data and a track record of collaboration for competitive extramural funding applications.
Winning proposals are awarded in June.
