The CHB-MIT Enterprise fosters the collaboration of investigators from Boston Children’s Hospital and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in their common pursuit of groundbreaking basic and translational research.
Our goal is to advance understanding and innovation in the biosciences through the “chemical reaction” triggered by the combination of diverse perspectives.
The Enterprise is working toward this goal through a major initiative:
joint research grants
With collaboration in mind, Boston Children’s and MIT are forging closer links: the BCH & MIT grant. These are one-year grants to support research between the two institutions. Even the applications must be co-initiated and co-funded by two researchers, one with a primary faculty appointment at Children’s and one at MIT.
Ideally, these funds are to be used to hire a student or postdoc. There are no restrictions on nationality or other demographic characteristics. OSP review and approval is not needed prior to your application, but it will be needed prior to the award. Yet other institutional requirements (e.g., approval of the department head if necessary) must still be obtained.
Once selected, each grant is for $47,000 in direct costs, for one year, with no overhead.
If you have any questions before submitting or when you’re ready to submit, send your questions or application to BCHMITgrant@childrens.harvard.edu. Applications will be accepted until August 15, 2012, and selected by peer review. Funding decisions will be announced in early October, 2012.
All applications will be judged on:
Our universal application format
To make this process universal, we ask that all information be filled on blank NIH continuation pages. Also, we ask that you use Arial 11 or comparable fonts and combine everything on a single .pdf document. Here’s what we need:
