RNA Bioscience Initiative Grant Program
The RNA Bioscience
Initiative (RBI) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical campus seeks to
support RNA biology research and the use of RNA-seq and its analysis to enhance
basic science, translational, and clinical studies. The RBI has supported a number
of different grant or pilot programs through the Fall of 2018.
Future grant programs are
currently under consideration.
2018 Grant Programs
RNA-seq Program (see Awards)
The Single Cell
RNA-seq Program aims to support preliminary Single Cell RNA-seq experiments to test the feasiblity
of novel avenues of research that will support future extramural grant
applications. These awards provide
funds to carry out Single Cell RNA-seq
runs and their bioinformatic analysis.
The RNA-seq Program
aims to support RNA-seq experiments to test the feasiblity of novel avenues of
research that will support future extramural grant applications These awards provide funds to cover library
preparation, sequencing and bioinformatic support.
Program (see Awards)
The RNA Biology
Program aims to support RNA biology research with awards of up to $50,000 to address fundamental aspects of RNA biogenesis
or function, the contribution of RNAs and their binding proteins to gene
regulation in normal or disease processes and the development of novel RNA
based technologies. Note this program will
not support projects whose aims are fully addressed by conventional RNA-seq.
Such projects would be supported by the RNA-seq or Single-Cell RNAseq programs.
Support Program (see Awards)
The Bioinformatic Support Program aims to provide RNA bioinformatic
support through the RBI Bioinformatic Fellows. These grants do not provide
Previous Grant Programs
