OVERVIEW

The Center for Oral Health Research (COHR) Pilot and Feasibility Project Program aims to facilitate innovative basic, translational and clinical research specifically in the area of oral and craniofacial biology. The ultimate goal of the program is to provide adequate resources and training for pilot investigators to develop sufficient preliminary data to prepare a competitive extramural research grant application that will directly utilize one or more of the COHR Cores. The program will have a three part focus with a mission to: 1) attract junior faculty without prior extramural funding to oral health-related research; 2) enable established COHR investigators to explore an area that represents a significant departure from their current work, and 3) entice established investigators in other areas of biomedical research to apply their expertise to an oral health-related problem. It is envisioned that the program will enable investigators to form interdisciplinary, interactive, and sustainable research studies that will impact oral and craniofacial health.

The COHR Pilot and Feasibility Project Program will support three general grant categories: Early Career, New Discovery, and Novel Methods & Technologies.
