                      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


Single Cell 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. 

 

RNA-seq Program (see Awards)

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.

 

RNA Biology 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.

 

Bioinformatics Support Program (see Awards)

The Bioinformatic Support Program aims to provide RNA bioinformatic support through the RBI Bioinformatic Fellows. These grants do not provide monetary budgets.


​​                                        Previous Grant Programs


  • Pilot Awards and Instrument Evaluation for Single-Cell RNA-seq (see Awards)
  • 2016 RNA Grant Program (see Awards)



 

                                          Travel Awards

The RNA Bioscience Initiative will provide support for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to attend scienctific meetings, such as those listed on the RNA Society's Conferences Page.
