On September 5, Research Services informed the UTMB research community of the new
CPRIT institutional limits on certain awards. This announcement was made through this blog post
and through various ListServ announcements
delivered directly to subscribers inboxes. Unfortunately, there are some who were unaware of the new institutional limits. In an effort to inform the campus and insure that those interested in applying have the opportunity to compete for these awards, the UTMB Health institutional guidelines have been extended to October 31, 2018.
To reiterate, the following CPRIT funding opportunities now have institutional submission limits. In order to submit a grant to one of them, you must first submit a biosketch and one-page abstract to Erica Huff
by 5:00 p.m. on October 31, 2018. These initial submissions will be reviewed by the Grant Review and Oversight (GRO) Committee. Those selected will be notified in time to write a full proposal to submit to CPRIT. Questions should be directed to Ms. Huff.
