The mission of the Wake Forest Tobacco Control Center of Excellence is to expand knowledge and reduce the burden of tobacco-related disease through research, education, training, treatment and implementation. We are excited to kick off our new center with a Call for Applications for Pilot Funding.
Our pilot grant program aims to:
1) Create new interdisciplinary teams of investigators working on nicotine and tobacco research, using team science approaches to address the critical areas challenging the field;
2) Support early career faculty;
3) Increase the number and quality of external grants submitted and funded related to nicotine and tobacco.
Proposal budgets may be up to $100,000 and may span up to two years to begin in March 2019. We anticipate funding multiple projects depending on the quality and budget requests of the applications received.
The application deadline is November 15, 2018 with an anticipated start date of March 1, 2019. More details and the application itself can be found here.
Please reach out to Stephanie (firstname.lastname@example.org), Erin Sutfin (email@example.com) or Eric Donny (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
