Grant Opportunities

Michigan Metabolomics and Obesity Center (MMOC) Pilot/Feasibility Grant Program

The purpose of the Michigan Metabolomics and Obesity Center (MMOC) Pilot /Feasibility (P/F) Grant Program is to promote research on the biological and behavioral determinants of obesity, and to develop interventions to reduce obesity and its disease sequelae using basic, clinical, or population approaches. The P/F program’s aim is to enable both new and established University of Michigan investigators to generate sufficient preliminary information for a successful application for major research funding from NIH or other national granting agencies. Grant proposals may be in areas of basic biomedical research or in clinical, epidemiological, or translational research, e.g., interventions in clinical or population-based settings. Animal or human models may be considered. Grant proposals involving cross-disciplinary expertise, faculty from different UM schools, and that utilize the core laboratories of the MMOC are especially encouraged.

The Pilot & Feasibility Program (P & F) application process may now be completed entirely online. Application forms will be available on the MMOC website about one month prior to the application cycle.
