Call for Pilot Project Applications

The Centers for Medical Countermeasures against Radiation Consortium (CMCRC) is now accepting applications for pilot projects. See CMCRC pilot project application instructions and forms.

Application due date: December 31, 2020

Anticipated project start date: May 1, 2021

Pilot project funding is intended to

  • Foster novel/early ideas within and outside awarded CMCRCs 
  • Develop or incorporate new technologies as they become available
  • Encourage collaborations among members of different centers and between the CMCRC and outside investigators (although research collaborations with existing centers are not required)
  • Allow maximum flexibility for the advancement of exciting high-risk, high-reward projects

Principal Investigators of pilot projects previously funded through the CMCRC program are now eligible to apply with new projects (not for continuation of prior funding). Junior investigators are especially encouraged to apply.

Pilot projects must be within the scope of the original CMCRC request for applications (RFA). See more information about the research areas of interest of the CMCRC program.
