Call for Proposals: Precision Medicine and Society Pilot Grant Program, Columbia University

November 15, 2019


Non-Columbia faculty may participate in a project so long as a Columbia faculty member or postdoc is the principal investigator; graduate students may participate so long as a Columbia faculty member is the PI. 


Up to a maximum of $20,000 to be used between November 29, 2019 and June 30, 2020. 


Pilot grant awards for Columbia faculty and postdocs are available from the Center for Research on Ethical, Legal and Social Implications (ELSI) of Psychiatric, Neurologic & Behavioral Genetics, Department of Psychiatry and the Precision Medicine & Society (PM&S) Program. The awards are designed to support pilot work on ethical, social, economic, legal, historical or philosophical issues related to genetics and precision medicine.

Proposals addressing issues relating to psychiatric, neurologic or behavioral genetics are especially encouraged; however, proposals relating to other areas of precision medicine are also welcome. Studies “piggy-backed” on existing research projects are welcome. Priority will be given to junior faculty who are interested in research in this area.
