Pilot and Feasibility Grants for Metabolomics Research

The Diabetes Research Center (DRC) of the University of Pennsylvania is pleased to announce a new component of its Pilot and Feasibility Program.  Up to two applications will be awarded for funding of metabolomics projects to be conducted by the DRC Regional Metabolomics Core at Princeton University. The Regional Metabolomics Core at Princeton, directed by Dr. Joshua Rabinowitz, is designed to enhance the overall mission of the Penn DRC by providing investigators access to state-of-the-art metabolomic capabilities that can support research aiming to prevent, treat, and cure diabetes mellitus. The Regional Core includes three LC-MS instruments dedicated to metabolomics and provides computational infrastructure for metabolomic data analysis and sharing, as well as expert staff to facilitate experimental design and data interpretation. For more information about core services please see http://www.med.upenn.edu/idom/derc/cores/metacore/index.html

Grants will be reviewed by the DRC Pilot and Feasibility Review Committee and internal and external reviewers.  Funding level maximum is $16,000 per award, which will be spent at the Princeton Core. Current Award period: April 1, 2014 - March 31, 2015.
