Molecular Imaging in Cancer Grants

Pilot project grant funds are available to support innovative projects and feasibility studies in molecular imaging. Studies may involve basic, translational or clinical approaches to development of molecular imaging capabilities, broadly related to cancer detection, prevention, diagnosis or therapy. Cross-disciplinary approaches are encouraged.

Funds are provided through support by the NCI-funded program to establish an In vivo Cellular Molecular Imaging Center. All faculty members with a cancer-related molecular imaging project, written in collaboration or consultation with a member of the JHU ICMIC, may apply. Grants will be in the range of $25,000 to $50,000 for one year with the potential for a no-cost extension for an additional year. Support may be requested for supplies and technical salaries.

Applications must contain specific aims, background including preliminary studies, experimental design, relevant publications, budget, estimated duration of project, and current and pending support with reasons for overlap. Applications must be written in font size 10 or larger. The total length of the specific aims, background and experimental design sections combined should not exceed five pages. An original and three copies of the proposal must be submitted by April 20 to Zaver Bhujwalla, 208C Traylor Building, 720 Rutland Ave. Applicants will be notified by Aug. 1.

Applications will be reviewed by members of the JHU ICMIC program. High priority will be given to innovative molecular imaging projects which involve significant interactions between faculty members. Projects can be high-risk but should be based on sound reasons for succeeding. For pre-submission inquiries, such as identifying potential collaborators, or other application-related information, contact Martha Seay, grant administrator, at 410-502-0174.


Request for Proposals

The Acheson J. Duncan Fund for the Advancement of Research in Statistics requests proposals for small grants to support research projects in statistics, probability and stochastic processes.

All Hopkins faculty and students are eligible to apply for funding for collaborative projects with a member of the faculty in the Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department. Most grants will be less than $5,000.

Proposals should be brief, preferably no more than three single-sided pages; provide itemized expense estimates; and be signed by each investigator. Proposals may be submitted at any time to committee chair John Wierman, Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department, 302 Whitehead Hall.
