Funds available for hepatitis C research: 5/21/97

RESEARCH FUNDS NOW ARE available for pilot/feasibility studies on all aspects of hepatitis C virus, through a multi-institutional cooperative study award furnished by the National Institutes of Health and administered by Stanford's Division of Gastroenterology.

Applications are due by Monday, July 7, from Ph.D. or MD members of the Stanford faculty, research associates and postdoctoral fellows, said Dr. Harry B. Greenberg, professor of medicine and principal investigator for the program. Each grant provides $20,000 for one year.

Greenberg said preference will be given to young investigators who have not yet obtained extramural support and who are proposing novel approaches to the virology, immunology, epidemiology and treatment of the disease.

Applications must set forth specific aims that are distinct from those of ongoing funded grants of the applicant or mentor. Senior investigators who propose studies that represent a significant departure from their currently funded research also may apply for the funds.

Detailed information and instructions for applying may be obtained from Sally Morefield in the gastroenterology research office at 493-5000, ext. 63121, or through e-mail at ml.sbm@forsythe.stanford.edu.
