GCB Faculty Pilot Research Awards: Request for Proposals

The Duke Center for Genomic and Computational Biology (GCB) invites applications for new interdisciplinary research projects in the areas of genomics, computational biology, synthetic biology, the microbiome, translational genomics, and related fields. The Center is most interested in proposals that suggest an exciting new direction for research across these areas, and expects these proposals will establish new collaborations between researchers within GCB and across the Duke community. Priority will be given to the most innovative, integrative, bold, and forward-looking applications.

The focus of these proposals should be on multi-PI team-oriented research projects that involve at least one GCB tenure-track faculty member. Co-PIs do not necessarily have to be GCB members, but they must be a Duke Faculty member or clinician. Although preference will be given to proposals involving researchers not currently collaborating, consideration will also be given to proposals that establish new initiatives among current collaborators.
