MEDx, with support from a generous gift from Dr. Alan and Mrs. Carol Kaganov, is now accepting proposals for the Kaganov Research Initiative in Pulmonary Medicine. This initiative will fund research that focuses directly on or has relevance to lung function and diseases, especially pulmonary fibrosis.
At least one grant of up to $150,000 will be awarded for one year. Proposals should describe cross-disciplinary scientific research on lung diseases or lung function, and particularly idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
All projects must be collaborations between faculty members from the Pratt School of Engineering and the School of Medicine.
Proposals are due on October 17. Funding will begin on January 1, 2019 and will last through December 31, 2019.
