Pilot and feasibility funding is available for research in women’s health related to sex differences in metabolic syndrome. The SCORE (U54 Specialized Center of Research Excellence, Karen Reue, PI) in the Metabolic Syndrome is an NIH-funded program that will support grantees at levels of $25,000 – $50,000 for one year of seed funding for novel research projects that investigate sex as a biological factor in metabolic disease.
If applying, please submit a one-page letter-of-intent as a PDF. Pilot funding is available for UCLA researchers, including all researchers at the UCLA Westwood and Santa Monica Campuses in DGSOM and UCLA College, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, LA BioMed at Harbor-UCLA and Charles R.
