2018 SALSI Pilot Awards for Opioid Epidemic Research
The goal of the new pilot funding program under the auspices of the San Antonio Life Sciences Institute (SALSI) is to promote interdisciplinary research focused on strategies addressing the broad themes described in the Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) Initiative, a report released April 4, 2018 by the National Institutes of Health.
The SALSI leadership identifies topic categories for intramural funding that will leverage study results into an external application in areas the biomedical research community* is investing heavily in response to national public health priorities.
*Applicants seeking funding are not limited to topics under the HEAL Initiative, but to be competitive, are encouraged to reference the particular agency(ies) where additional grant support could be obtained i.e. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Department of Defense.
The total maximum amount to be requested is $50,000 per award ($25,000 per institution). It is anticipated that two projects will be funded. Proposal Deadline: July 6, 2018
