200K Pilot Grant Award

A core mission of the center is to provide support for early career investigators to conduct research that propels them to independence using team-based, interdisciplinary mentorship, access to our research cores and our Pilot Grant Program.

Our Pilot Grant provides $200,000 over two years to support cardiovascular and brain health research. We aim to fund pairs of investigators with complementary background and experience to advance interdisciplinary research.

Research support may be provided by the VCCBH Study Design and Molecular Epidemiology and Customized Physiology and Imaging Cores. Access to these cores will advance grantees’ skills in study design, epidemiology, translational research, imaging, experimental instrumentation, and electrophysiology.

The RFA 2023 Pilot Grant Award will be available for download on this site on December 6, 2022.
