IBB Faculty are now invited to submit proposals for the 2018 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.
This year we anticipate awarding 5 interdisciplinary teams $10,000 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 from different disciplines or
(b) One (or more) IBB faculty and one (or more) faculty from another Texas Medical Center institution.
Submission Deadline: Friday, Oct 5, 2018, 4:00 PM CST. Email your submission as a single PDF file to (firstname.lastname@example.org). For formatting details, please review the 2018 IBB Hamill Innovation Award Proposal Guidelines. Late submissions will not be accepted and winning teams will be notified in mid October 2018.
