Call for Applications: Pilot Grants in Precision Medicine, Columbia University

May 21, 2021


Open to Columbia University faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students. Non-Columbia faculty can participate in a project so long as a Columbia faculty member or postdoctoral scholar is the principal investigator. Graduate student applicants may propose a faculty supervisor or will be matched with an appropriate faculty member if needed. 


Awards are up to $40,000. 


Pilot grants from the Precision Medicine and Society Program are available to support empirical or conceptual work on ethical, social, economic, legal, historical or philosophical issues related to precision/personalized medicine. Proposals should address the promise and/or limitations of precision public health; the ethical, legal, and social implications of advances in medical or behavioral genetics; or the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence to healthcare. Studies addressing other dimensions of precision medicine are also welcome. Studies “piggy-backed” on existing research projects are welcome.
