Internal Funding Opportunities

Research Affinity Teams

Research Affinity Teams (RAffTs) are workgroups supported and approved by the LSOM Dean's Office. Ultimately these working groups should serve as the foundation of a Program Project Grant, multidisciplinary (U01) grant, or other similar large award, though outcomes including increased cross-departmental collaborations for publications, enhanced sharing of data/equipment/best practices, etc. are also encouraged.  Please click here for more information.


Bridge Funding

The Bridge Funding Program is available to faculty with a primary appointment in the SOM and an established track record of obtaining extramural funding who are experiencing a temporary disruption of funding that, without institutional support, would have a substantial adverse impact on the overall long-term viability of their research program. This program is not intended for faculty with multiple R01-equivalent grants if other grants have remaining years of funding, or to provide pilot funds for new projects.
