Two to three pilot studies will be selected.
The Centers for Excellence in Self-Management program was designed to enhance interdisciplinary, biobehavioral research for scientists conducting self-management research by enabling development of a sustainable research infrastructure and centralized resources in support of research programs in various science areas. Pilot studies, currently not funded and aimed at obtaining preliminary results toward a full application for extramural funds, are considered eligible.
Principal Investigators (PIs) must be full time UCI faculty from any school or discipline; junior faculty are especially encouraged to apply, but established investigators pursuing novel research lines are also welcome.
The review process will be structured in two phases:
Phase I: submission of scientific abstract. These abstracts will be reviewed internally.
(Deadline: February 12, 2014; notification of results February 15);
Phase II: submission of full proposal; this will be limited to the top 2-3 abstracts submitted during Phase I. These proposals will be reviewed internally.
(Deadline: February 28, 2014)
The Phase II applications should consist of a single word document, typed in font no smaller than 11 and with half-inch margins, including:

a) Specific Aims;
3) Biosketches (NIH) of Co-PI’s
4) A 1-page itemized two-year budget (not to exceed $70K per year for personnel costs; research resources will be budgeted separately)
*Please note that grant funding is not a guarantee; if the grant is funded, all required approved IRB and/or IACUC documents must be in place before funds are actually released to awarded applications.
