Announcing the 2019 JI Request for Proposals


The Michigan Medicine-Peking University Health Science Center Joint Institute (JI) for Translational and Clinical Research is now accepting proposals from investigators working collaboratively at both institutions for funding of projects that will demonstrate an effective team approach to discovery and new findings on diseases relative to both countries, and which can be leveraged for extramural funding opportunities.

Funding amount and eligibility

Discovery awards are available (up to $100,000/year for two years) for new, early-stage collaborations. Larger Pilot awards (up to $300,000/year for two years) will support projects between investigators with an established track record of collaboration. New in 2019, the JI leadership is pleased to extend this funding opportunity to faculty from all health science disciplines (note that some cost-sharing is excepted from schools outside Michigan Medicine to obtain matching support from U-M).
