Internal Funding Review Panel

The mission of this committee is to aid the Dean of the School of Medicine and The Office of Research in fostering research within the School by reviewing internal grant submissions.  The four grant mechanisms that have been established to provide support for faculty while they are in the process of securing federal or private funding for their research are: (1) Bridge Grants, (2) New Project Grants, (3) Clinical Research Grants and (4) Laboratory Supplements for Competitive Proposals.  The committee has both standing and ad hoc members whose task is to evaluate the grants submitted under each mechanism for significance, innovation, progress and feasibility.
