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.
