Research Administration is pleased to announce funding opportunities in two
areas: Small Grant program and New
Investigator initiative. The funds are
sponsored by HH Medical Staff and Hartford Hospital Research Administration.
The Small Grant
program funds promising investigator-initiated projects or pilot studies that address
system wide goals of patient safety, quality or personalized medicine AND will
lead to major submissions for external funding. The funding can cover any aspect of study
cost, including salary support, supplies, analytic and/or data base support,
etc, however requests for travel, lap-tops, computers, or other capital
expenses are generally not allowable. The
maximum award will be $10,000.
Investigator program provides support for projects involving investigators in post
graduate training programs or Hartford Healthcare employees in the first five
years of their careers who require nominal financial support for small research
projects. Residents and fellows must be working with a
mentor who is willing to assume the responsibility of being the Principal
Investigator. The grant funding can cover statistics and database services, lab
or test fees, or patient compensation. Salary costs and travel are not
covered. The maximum award will be $2,000.
maximum funding amounts should be viewed as a limit and not a target. Budgets should be streamlined and designed to
cover essentials only. The RC will evaluate the scientific merit, originality,
budget and relationship to the specific goals of the HHC research enterprise.
The RC may approve a proposal for funding at a funding level less than
the total requested.
