Research June Newsletter




As we approach the July 4th weekend and the start of the summer season, many of you will be taking time to spend with family or friends over the next two months. Enjoy and be safe wherever that may be. For those seeking funding for your research endeavors, I would like to direct you to two opportunities through our iTHRIV association. Briefly, $280,000 will be distributed to the member sites (UVA, VT, Inova and Carilion Clinic) to pursue research in pilot translational/ clinic and community-based research. Although funding is competitive, Carilion Clinic has been extremely successful in both categories with two active projects currently. Information on these opportunities is contained in this newsletter. All proposals are due Monday, August 29th, 5pm EST. Good luck!
