Pilot Research Program
2020 Competition

Letter of Intent Deadline:     February 14, 2020
Invited Application Due:       April 10, 2020

The SNPRC Pilot Research Program provides opportunities and support for investigators to use SNPRC nonhuman primate resources in highly focused, short-term studies with a high likelihood of enhancing the value, utility, feasibility and attractiveness of nonhuman primates for biomedical research.

High priority is given to studies that propose to generate preliminary data for applications to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support future research projects. Other studies that are considered responsive to the program’s goals include those that propose to develop new nonhuman primate models of disease, or develop and/or test new research methods, instrumentation or approaches for biomedical research using nonhuman primates.

Information on the 2020 SNPRC Pilot Grant Program competition, including due dates for letters of intent and completed applications, can now be found on the SNPRC website (

Applicants should review this information thoroughly as the terms of the pilot grants and the application process have changed.

Note that an investigator does not have to be associated with SNPRC or its host institution, Texas Biomedical Research Institute, to qualify for consideration.
