The YSM Office of Team Science will support teams of investigators to address major questions in basic, clinical, and translational science and partner with them on grant submissions to obtain federal funding for sustainable support for these projects. To nucleate new projects, we will provide $50,000 to $200,000 to groups of two to five investigators, led by a YSM faculty member, in support of research projects having the potential to achieve program project or center funding (i.e., U01, U54, P01, P30, P50, comparable large grants from other federal and non-federal agencies).
Major review criteria for this award are scientific excellence and likelihood that the proposed program will result in (1) the advancement of an interdisciplinary approach to address an important question in biomedical translational science and (2) the submission of a multi-project grant application such as a U01, U54, P01, P30, or P50.
Applications will undergo a two-step review process: (1) Letters of intent will be solicited to confirm project alignment with POINTS objectives and (2) a limited number of proposals will be invited to submit a full application for review by a panel appointed by the Dean of YSM.
NOTE: Resubmissions will be allowed on a case-by-case basis. A new letter of intent is not needed, but a review studio will be required prior to resubmission.
