MMPC Funding Opportunity: MICROMouse Program
Here is the information from National Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center (MMPC):
The MMPC MICROMouse Program is a competitive grants program awarding up to $75,000 (total costs) for one year to fund research projects that have the potential to enhance and advance the mission of the MMPC as a resource for scientists using mice to study diabetes and obesity. Any independent investigator, including post-doctoral fellows, is eligible to apply. A project must be either: 1) resource-development (e.g., develop, improve, miniaturize, teach, distribute, etc. phenotyping tests for use in mice); or 2) resource-related research (e.g., a new, currently unfunded project where results have potential impact for mouse centered research in diabetes or obesity, particularly those focused on broad biological questions that impact the ability of the MMPC to meet its goals). MICROMouse Program funds are not intended to replace or reduce the fees charged for services requested from an MMPC.
The mission of the MMPC is to advance medical and biological research by providing the scientific community with standardized, high quality metabolic and physiologic phenotyping services for mouse models of diabetes, diabetic complications, obesity and related disorders.
For instructions on how to submit a MICROMouse Funding Program Application to the MMPC web portal please see MMPC MICROMouse Program Application Submission Basic Training (PDF)
There is no formal deadline associated with MICROMouse applications, but applications will be reviewed quarterly (March 1, June 1, September 1, December 1) and therefore should be submitted accordingly. A letter of intent with a brief (2-3 sentences) description of the proposed project must be sent to Dr. Richard McIndoe at email@example.com at least two weeks prior to submission of an application. The letter will be promptly reviewed by the MMPC MICROMouse committee for responsiveness and for the relevance of the project to the MMPC mission. Applications will be accepted only with permission from the MICROMouse committee. "
