Across the Finish Line (AFL) Grants

The Strategic Infrastructure for Research Committee (SIRC) announced a new pilot program for grant funding - “Across the Finish Line” or AFL Grants - that are designed to help both junior faculty and established faculty moving into a new area of investigation. Funds will be used to generate pilot data that can be leveraged into a new R01-type grant submission (or re-submission). Initially, grants will be reviewed by the standing Strategic Infrastructure for Research Committee (SIRC).
