Dear Colleagues -
As part of the ongoing series of communications updating everyone on various budget items and other news, Dr. Lanier and his team developed a summary of opportunities provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act with respect to support of Biomedical Research (view the pdf summary).
Note also that a summary collection of related information is posted on the Research Resources Web site http://research.musc.edu/researchresources.html.
The attached document details some of the opportunities available through the National Institutes of Health and it also provides information on the steps we have taken to prepare for this opportunity and provide support for the research community.
Please note that Dr. Lanier will also discuss these opportunities on Thursday March 12, 2009 Noon to 1:00 pm in EL 102 as the first of monthly open forums for RESEARCH UPDATES sponsored by the University Research Council.
I know the investigators and the research support teams are all working very hard to successfully compete for these funding opportunities and I greatly appreciate the commitment and tremendous effort. We have a great team and I am confident that we will be successful on many fronts.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can help in any way as we go forward with these initiatives.
