The CRBM has an annual open call for proposals to support pilot projects in the area of redox biology and medicine. The Request for Applications is issued once a year, with the Letter of Intent due mid-September and full applications due mid-October. Specific criteria include:

  • Building new collaborations between members and with researchers from other centers
  • Fostering clinical connections with research in the area of redox biology and medicine
  • Providing a high potential to inspire new multi-investigator extramural grants (P01s, R01s, U01s, etc)
