IBB Faculty are invited to submit proposals for the 2019 IBB Hamill Innovation Awards! Since 2005, the Hamill Foundation has provided critical seed funds for IBB faculty members interested in bio-related, interdisciplinary research at Rice. These Awards have enabled the exploration of high risk research areas and served as a catalyst for faculty members to attain increasingly competitive funding from federal agencies.
We are proud to announce that due to the generosity of the Hamill Foundation, we have significantly increased this year’s award!
4 interdisciplinary, Rice faculty led teams, will be awarded $25,000 each (direct costs only; not to be used for travel expenses). All interdisciplinary teams should be composed of either:
(a) Two (or more) IBB faculty members from different scientific or engineering disciplines or;
(b) One (or more) IBB faculty member(s) and one (or more) faculty members(s) from another Texas Medical Center institution.
Submission Deadline: Thursday, October 3, 2019, 4:00 PM CST. Email your submission as a single PDF file to (email@example.com). For formatting details, please review the 2019 IBB Hamill Innovation Award Proposal Guidelines.
Late submissions will not be accepted and winning teams will be notified in mid October 2019.
Looking forward to receiving your proposals!
