Biomedical problems are innately complex and real solutions will require input from many fields. Such input is most effective when it is integrated and interdisciplinary, and the foundation of interdisciplinary research is a strong modeling framework. The Center for Modeling Complex Interactions (CMCI) is a NIH-funded COBRE (Center of Biomedical Research Excellence; P20GM104420). Our goal is to bring together modelers and empirical scientists to address biomedical problems across all levels of biological organization, from biophysical to ecological.
CMCI will fund one or two Pilot Grants to begin in 2017. The CMCI Pilot Grant Program fosters research at the University of Idaho in areas that combine modeling with empirical data to address complex problems relevant to human health. The objective of the Pilot Grants Program is to provide faculty with personnel and financial resources to initiate modeling efforts for new research proposals to NIH or other agencies. The maximum allowable request is $80,000 direct costs (plus indirect costs 45.3%). Allowable costs are detailed below. Funding is for 1 year beginning no earlier than February 1st and no later than May 15th, 2017. Previously funded CMCI Pilot grants may apply for the second period of funding for the same project on a competitive basis.
CMCI Modeling Access Grants
Application Deadline: Currently not accepting proposals
The Modeling Access Grant Program enables faculty to produce preliminary biomedical models for competitive external proposals using support from the Center for Modeling Complex Interactions (CMCI) Collaboratorium. This program is intended for faculty who have modeling needs outside of their expertise and would like to add a modeling component to a proposal to be submitted within the next year. The access grant will provide dedicated time with Collaboratorium personnel for developing models and preparing the modeling aspects of a grant proposal. If desired, CMCI can also prepare the budget for the modeling aspect of the proposal and hire and supervise postdoctoral personnel in the Collaboratorium to carry out the work on funded proposals.
