Testing Molecular Hypotheses in Human Subjects

Due: October 7, 2022

A key limiting factor for testing molecular hypotheses or evaluating promising new tools in humans is the establishment of productive connections between molecular scientists/engineers who have access to innovative tools and practicing clinicians with access to sick or healthy cohorts of human subjects. To facilitate such collaborations, Sarafan ChEM-H is soliciting brief proposals from small teams of clinicians and scientists/engineers who seek to undertake exploratory studies involving human subjects.

Through this funding mechanism, Sarafan ChEM-H seeks to support collaborative projects that will test a molecular hypothesis in human subjects or validate the utility of a new tool in the diagnosis or management of a disease.

Proposals in any disease area will be considered, but research that leverages the Project BIG biorepository, focuses on EGFR-driven lung cancer, or relates to stem cell biology is especially welcome.
