RU Internal Grant Funding Opportunity: Health Care Delivery
(Sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation)

The Office of Research is seeking proposals from teams of full-time faculty in the areas of health care education and health care delivery research. This grant funding opportunity is focused on cultivating interdisciplinary research partnerships between the Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine (SOM) in Stratford, the main campus of Rowan University in Glassboro, and the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University in Camden (CMSRU). These internal awards of up to $100,000 are made possible by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Requirements:

All projects must show the development of a team of faculty from at least one campus in addition to SOM. All key personnel from the campuses must have a demonstrated critical role in the proposed research. It is required that all grant recipients will submit an application to NIH or another funding agency as the result of the outcomes produced through this internal grant mechanism. Priority consideration will be given to projects that pursue innovative solutions, develop insights into complex or poorly understood problems, leverage interdisciplinary collaboration to create new methodologies, or otherwise yield novel findings that address the challenges facing health care education and health care delivery.
