New Investigator Program

The 2013 New Investigator Program Request for Proposals is now closed. The 2014 Request for Proposals is expected to be released in May.

 

The New Investigator Program helps promising researchers take innovative approaches to improving health in Wisconsin. Funded projects span the continuum from basic, clinical, social/behavioral and population sciences. Five proposals were funded through this program in 2013.

 

Grant Awards: New Investigator Program grants are worth up to $100,000 over two years.

 

Applicant Eligibility: The Principal Investigator must be a University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health assistant professor with a salaried appointment of 50 percent or greater in the UWSMPH. Tenure track assistant professors must have a formal start date on or after January 1, 2010, plus tenure track extension, if applicable. Clinical health sciences (CHS) and clinician-teacher (CT) assistant professors must have a formal start date on or after January 1, 2008.

 

The Partnership Education and Research Committee (PERC) encourages eligible faculty within all UW School of Medicine and Public Health departments, including basic science, to apply.

 

Please direct any questions about eligibility to the Wisconsin Partnership Program at wpp@hslc.wisc.edu.
