RNA Bioscience Initiative Grant Program
next awards will be announced in late Spring 2019
Bioscience Initiative Grant Programs
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. Towards that goal, the RBI has four Grant Programs
available for 2018-2019. Grant Program descriptions,
deadlines, and application guidelines are provided below. Questions regarding the grant program should be
directed to RNA.Bioscience@UCDenver.edu
Cell RNA-seq Program
Description of Grant Programs
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 cover library
preparation, sequencing and bioinformatic support.
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.
The Bioinformatic Support Program aims to provide RNA bioinformatic
support through the RBI Bioinformatic Fellows. These grants do not provide
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.
Applications for Travel Awards are accepted on a rolling basis. The following materials should be emailed to email@example.com with the Subject line: "Application for Travel Award."
