Research Funding Opportunities
The New England Baptist Hospital Research Funding Awards provide up to $50,000 of funding for innovative, original, and collaborative translational and/or clinical research projects.
The intent of the funding is to speed up the rate of progress to move a research project, clinical finding or other discovery into a broader network of activities, while maximizing the breadth of interdisciplinary skills applied to the research question.
Individual project awards (up to $50,000 for 18 months) will be made on a competitive basis to enable investigators to accelerate the translation of innovative, cutting edge research.
The Principal Investigator must be a full time member of the active medical, nursing, or allied professional staff at NEBH. Co-investigators may be from other institutions. We encourage multidisciplinary research projects.
The Scientific Advisory Board is comprised of a multidisciplinary group representing the hospital. The board will evaluate each application carefully and make final decisions as to which applications will be funded.
The Board’s criteria include scientific merit, timeliness and the overall competence and enthusiasm of the investigators and departments in which the research will be conducted.
