The Center for Biomedical Image Computing and Analytics (CBICA) will continue its seed grant program this year and will award 2 one-year seed grants, of $50,000 each, aiming to foster collaborative work among the center's faculty and their close collaborators, on projects relevant to the center's scope. Successful applications are expected to 1) demonstrate high potential for attracting external funding after their completion, 2) be collaborative between basic scientists and clinical researchers, and 3) have a strong emphasis on using advanced image computing to address a clinically important problem. Everything else being equal, junior investigators will be given preference (we don’t have percentiles to give the usual NIH young investigator advantage, so this is stated sort of informally here). At least one of the investigators should be a CBICA faculty member.
Please send all forms to Amanda Shacklett (Amanda.Shacklett@uphs.upenn.edu).
