2013 UMass Life Sciences Moment Fund (LSMF): Funding Call

The University of Massachusetts Center for Clinical & Translational Science is pleased to announce a funding call for the UMass Life Sciences Moment Fund (LSMF) 2013. The UMass LSMF supports projects that are inter-campus in orientation and directed towards life sciences projects related to clinical and translational research. Current and future projects supported by this fund are envisioned to advance the therapeutic, device, intervention, etc., under study along the translational pipeline. The fund serves to spur inter-campus collaboration and strengthen the University's research portfolio in clinical and translational research. To support this mission, projects must include at least one investigator from the UMass Worcester Campus and a collaborator from at least one of the other UMass campuses. By providing seed funding to outstanding faculty members, this fund facilitates the development of faculty-to-faculty networks within the University system, thereby leveraging the considerable expertise and resources that exist on the individual campuses. It is assumed that successful projects will attract additional funding from extramural sources.

New this year, the LSMF will be coordinated more closely with the UMass President's Office Science and Technology (S&T) Initiatives Fund.
