LETTER OF INTENT (LOI) DEADLINE- JANUARY 18, 2017
APPLICATION SUBMISSION DEADLINE – FEBRUARY 08, 2017
IIMR’s mission is to promote and enhance research efforts that will ultimately result in improved quality of life for veterans and for the greater population. In support of that mission, IIMR works to encourage investigators to develop their research careers by working with IIMR and the VA and veterans to answer important questions. One way IIMR encourages investigators is to sponsor the annual Young Investigator Award Program, which provides a competitive experience for investigators to explore the possibilities of VA-related research.
The IIMR is currently seeking submissions for clinical, basic science and translational research. It is expected that two meritorious awards will be funded through this RFA cycle. Project budgets should be limited to those funds necessary to carry out the research project and should limited to $25,000.
