Pilot Grants

Funding Agency:
Oregon National Primate Research Center

The Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) is soliciting proposals for the annual pilot grant research program. The purpose of this funding mechanism is to encourage activities related to the use of nonhuman primates for biomedical research or for studies enhancing NHP welfare or husbandry. Pilot research should be developmental or high-risk and, in the case of biomedical research proposals, should be used to generate preliminary data in support of applications for further project support, such as NIH, other federal, or foundation grants. We encourage proposals from early-stage investigators.

Due to increased demand for the limited nonhuman primate resource and potential additional needs for COVID-19-related research, applicants are encouraged, whenever possible, to utilize study animals or samples from ongoing studies or biobanks.
