Deadlines: Abstracts should be submitted electronically by April 13, 2022
Wake Forest Primate Signature Program provides access to nonhuman primates (NHPs) and related resources for studies that advance the CTSA network’s translational research. The objective is to facilitate the collection of data from NHPs in support of applications for extramural funding. To assist new NHP researchers, the award mechanism is intended to support project expenses and labor costs locally at Wake Forest and excludes PI effort and associated F&A from collaborating institutions. The award includes faculty and technical support for in vivo studies, with no requirement for the awardee to be on-site. Ex vivo and data projects can be supported by sending data or samples to the investigator as needed.
Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent (1 page maximum) by May 6, 2022. Please use Chrome or Firefox browser to activate the LOI survey link: https://redcap.link/a97yl4h8. An invitation to apply, or notification that you have not been selected, will be sent by May 13, 2022. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for answers to any questions and guidance in developing a proposal.
The All of Us Research Program, part of the National Institute of Health, is building one of the largest biomedical data resources of its kind. The All of Us Research Hub stores health data from a diverse group of participants from across the United States.
UT Health San Antonio researchers can access All of Us data and tools to conduct studies to help improve our understanding of human health.
Informational Webinar for this program will be on Tuesday, April 12th from 1:00PM-2:00PM.
