Nutrition Obesity Research Center Pilot & Feasibility Program

The Washington University Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC)
Call for Proposals : 2018 Pilot and Feasibility Program


The Nutrition Obesity Research Center’s Pilot & Feasibility Program provides modest research support for a limited time (usually one to two years) to enable eligible investigators to explore the feasibility of a concept related to the mission of the NORC and generate sufficient data to pursue it through other funding mechanisms (e.g. R01).

Pilot grants will fund up to $30,000 direct costs for one year. A second year of funding is available, but is a competitive process, and will depend upon successful progress and promise of adequate data to support renewal.

Applications must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, June 18, 2018. Awards will be announced September 15, 2018, and funding will begin October 1, 2018.
