Closed

The Vice President for Research REEF program is designed for active investigators and/or departments to replace aging, obsolete or damaged research equipment, or to acquire new research equipment that represents the latest technology. The overall goal of the program is to assist MUSC faculty in purchasing instrumentation necessary to attain their research goals. A total of $100,000 funding is available for the spring deadline.
Application Due:   March 14, 2016
 

Open

The College of Medicine Bridge Funding supports investigators with established clinical or basic research programs during periods when a competitive renewal or "next stage" application is not funded. Applications are accepted three times per year - April 15th, August 15th, and December 15th of each year.
Application Due:  August 15, 2016
