The UC San Diego Institute for Public Health (IPH), launched in January 2015, supports cutting edge transdisciplinary public health research across UC San Diego aimed at improving the health of populations locally, nationally, and globally.
The IPH is pleased to announce the availability of Pilot Project Grants
for 2016. These are one-year awards to UC San Diego faculty to provide
funding for early stage projects. Based upon recommendations of faculty
advising the IPH, three focus areas of research and project areas of
special interest have been identified:
2. Technology and public health. Special interest areas include developing a use case for technology (e.g., on diabetes), low cost sensors for data collection, and wearables for prevention.
3. Lifestyle and public health. Special interest areas are pediatric and adult obesity, physical activity and sedentariness.
The IPH solicits applications from all UC San Diego faculty, particularly from those faculty already participating in the working groups established in these three focus areas.
The IPH anticipates making up to three awards for approximately $30,000/each.
Proposals from faculty that also include a graduate or post-doctoral student researcher are encouraged, and an additional $5,000 can be budgeted for their support.
In collaboration with the Clinical and Translational Research Institute (http://www.ctri.ucsd.edu/Pages/default.aspx), proposals in focus areas #2 and #3 that include Assistant or Associate level faculty can budget an additional $5,000 total for their support.
