in Digestive and Liver Disease
Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program
2002 Competition Call for Proposals
Center for Molecular Studies in Digestive and Liver Disease seeks
applications to its Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program. Proposals
should be related to the focus of the Center, which encompasses
molecular studies on the biology or disease of the alimentary
tract, pancreas, and liver. Relevant investigations include those
in developmental biology, nutrition, regulation of gene expression,
growth, differentiation and carcinogenesis, the biology of stem
cells, molecular genetics, gene therapy, and immunology, including
growth factors and cytokines. Grants range from $10,000 to $15,000
for a 12-month period, and are eligible for one competitive renewal.
