Extended to April 30: LWBIWH/UMC Research Scholar/Seed Grant Proposals

The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health (LWBIWH) in Lubbock and UMC Health System are pleased to announce the LWBIWH/UMC Research Scholars and Seed Grant programs for 2013-2014.

The Research Scholars program is an opportunity to identify and support clinical faculty who are developing longitudinal (two-year) projects in women’s health or gender differences.

This Women's Health Research Scholar Program provides funding, research support and other resources to assist clinical faculty with career interests in women’s health/gender-specific scholarship, and whose efforts can serve as the core of our continuing research focus in Lubbock.

The Seed Grant Program funds women's health/gender-specific research projects that have the highest likelihood of leading to strong extramural grant applications. The program supports clinical or basic sciences faculty or faculty teams that are developing pilot or preliminary studies.

Eligible principal investigators must have a primary faculty appointment and more than 50 percent employment on the TTUHSC Lubbock campus and should not be considered in training.
