Overview: Intramural Grant Opportunities at ACRI

ACHRI/ABI Discovery Acceleration Initiative in Pediatric Medicine Investigator-Initiated Research Award

The ACHRI/ABI Discovery Acceleration Initiative in Pediatric Medicine Investigator-Initiated Research Award Program is made possible with funds provided to ACHRI from the Arkansas Tobacco Settlement via the Arkansas Biosciences Institute (ABI). The funding opportunities were designed to specifically promote the goals of the ABI. Award amounts vary each year. Letters of Intent are due on June 1, and full proposals from those invited to submit applications are due August 1. The program limits eligibility to investigators who are either located on the ACH campus or conduct research on the ACH campus. A special emphasis panel reviews and scores applications, and upon recommendation by the ACRI President, the ACRI Board of Directors approves final funding decisions.

ACHRI/ABI Postdoctoral Fellowship Grant Awards

The ACHRI/ABI Postdoctoral Fellowship Grant Award intramural grant mechanism was created to support investigator-initiated, hypothesis-driven (goal-directed) research directed by trainees conducting pediatric research on the ACH campus. Eligible candidates include those with MD, PhD, MD/PhD, PharmD, or PharmD/PhD degrees who are in their second year of postdoctoral training. All trainees must apply with a mentor who is a full-time UAMS faculty member. Click here for a full program description.

Nursing and Allied Health Research Awards

The Nursing and Allied Health Research Award intramural grant mechanism was created to support investigator-initiated, hypothesis-driven (goal-directed) research directed by nurses and allied health professionals conducting pediatric research on the ACH campus. Eligible candidates include those with a terminal professional degree required for their discipline. If the applicant is pursuing a graduate degree, that applicant must include a detailed mentoring plan and a mentoring statement by an ACH staff member. Click here for a full program description.

The Marion B. Lyon New Scientist Development Award

A generous gift from a private donor endows the Marion B. Lyon New Scientist Development Program. This program was established to support highly promising beginning scientists who are working to become independent investigators but who have yet to receive specific types of NIH funding. Eligible candidates must hold MD, PhD, or have equivalent doctoral degree earned at the time of submission (at the rank of Instructor or Assistant Professor) and must be based full time on the ACH campus.
