2012 University Reseach and Graduate Student Research Request for Proposals

The deadline for the Healthy Foods, Healthy Lives (HFHL) Institute University Research and Graduate Student Research grant programs are nearing:

The focus of the University Research RFP is to fund new, interdisciplinary faculty research teams that include members from at least three distinct disciplines and that produce research that has a high potential for growth and for becoming self-supporting over time. The priority areas for focus are food protection (safety), prevention of obesity and diet-related disease, and food policy. Within these priority areas, of special importance is the integration of agriculture and health sciences.

We are also requesting Graduate Student Research applications to fund student research and/or other activities related to broadening interdisciplinary learning in the areas of food, agriculture, and human health. Graduate student research requests should seek to establish cross-disciplinary learning and engagement.

Graduate student proposal applications are due July 9, 2012 and project funding will commence August 15. University proposal applications are due July 16, 2012 and project funding will commence on August 22.
