Dean's Research Innovation Fund

Designed to promote clinically-relevant research by medical students, residents, fellows, and junior clinical faculty in the School of Medicine, the Dean’s Research Innovation Fund awards to five grants per year for up to $10,000 per award. Eligible projects include those designed to produce preliminary data to support larger extramurally funded research pursuits, to stimulate collaborations between learners and faculty “sponsors,” and to advance research projects by junior investigators.
