2012 - 2013 Grant Programs
Utah Genome Project Partnership Grants
The Utah Genome Project Partnership Grants Program will support the development of relevant resources for and/or the performance of genomic analysis in families with well-characterized clinical phenotypes. As part of the larger, long-term vision of the Utah Genome Project, this Program will fund pilot projects that use Utah Population Database resources to identify, ascertain, phenotype and study high-risk pedigrees that, with appropriate genome/exome sequencing technologies, are highly likely to identify genetic determinants of human diseases, traits or therapeutic response/non-response. Pre-proposal deadline: September 14, 2012. View details and application instructions.
Personalized Health Care Travel Grants provide funding for University of Utah faculty member and trainee travel to national personalized health care conferences, contributing to the development of a robust community of experts in this growing field. Application deadline: November 5, 2012. View application instructions.
