Pilot Grant Program
What is it?
The Center on Aging sponsors an annual pilot grant program to promote the development of aging research at the University of Utah. The goal of this program is to encourage the development of new investigators, attract established investigators to aging research, and stimulate interdisciplinary research collaborations ultimately leading to new externally funded research.
Since the Center began an annual pilot grant program in 2006, 120 applications (representing 108 unique investigators due to re-submissions) have been reviewed and, of these, 39 have been funded. A total of $1.0M has been invested in this program.
