The William T. Grant Scholars program supports promising early-career researchers from diverse disciplines, who have demonstrated success in conducting high-quality research and are seeking to further develop and broaden their expertise.
The NIH invites applications for R01 awards to support Bioengineering Research Grants (BRGs) for basic and applied multi-disciplinary research that addresses important biological, bioengineering or medical research problems. The BRGs support multi-disciplinary research performed in a single laboratory or by a small number of investigators that applies an integrative, systems approach to develop knowledge and/or methods to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat disease or to understand health and behavior.
Intel is excited to be announcing the 2013 rollout of the Early Career Faculty Honor Program. This is the second year Intel has offered this program. In 2012 Intel honored 11 faculty members in the US with awards.
