Pilot and Feasibility


P & F GRANTS

  1. "Nutrition, Obesity and Metabolic Health Throughout the Lifespan"
    Approximately $170,000 is available to fund P&F grants (Minimum 2, maximum 5). The major objective of this program is to provide research support to develop preliminary data/novel methods from individuals or multidisciplinary teams involving nutrition/obesity-related research.

  2. 2017 Special RFA on "NUTRITION, OBESITY and CANCER"
    Approximately $60,000 is available to fund one or two P&F grants around the theme of nutrition, obesity and cancer. The major objective of this program is to provide research support to develop preliminary data and/or potential novel approaches (methods) from pairs of investigators with one investigator from LSU-HSC in New Orleans (cancer expertise) and the other from Pennington Biomedical (obesity expertise). This program needs to have at least one of the 2 investigators (either from LSU-HSC or from PBRC) to be a young investigator while the other can be more a mentor in the execution of the scientific proposal.
