The HSC Office of Research offers opportunities as well as support for researchers seeking both internal and external funding. The Office of Research maintains a list of select funding opportunities that is distributed once a week. These announcements include traditional funding opportunities within NIH, but also announce opportunities from other key agencies such as AHRQ, HRSA and private foundations like PCORI, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the McKnight Foundation.
The UNM HSC Office of Research supports its investigators in their pursuit of funding opportunities by offering editing services, general strategic grantsmanship training as well as training for specific funding opportunities, e.g., PCORI, SBIR/STTR, CTSC Pilot Program.
Funds are available for equipment purchases in the School of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, and College of Nursing.
The UNM Clinical and Translational Science Center is building interdisciplinary research bridges that hasten translation of medical discovery into practice. Key to this strategy is the CTSC Pilot Awards Program that provides intramural funding for clinical and translational research at the Health Sciences Center including two rounds of funding for our standard RFAs annually.
The SOM Research Allocation Committee (RAC) reviews grant applications and makes recommendations to the Senior Associate Dean for Research in the School of Medicine for the distribution of award monies from the Medical Trust Fund and Tobacco Settlement Pilot Project funds.
Due to the nature of limited competitions, each opportunity will have specific submission guidelines. For further information on any limited competition, please contact the HSC Office of Research (272-6950).
