FUNDING FOR PILOT STUDIES IN SUBSTANCE ABUSE RESEARCH

Up to $10,000 will be awarded for each study receiving approval from the TRC directors. Pilot studies are to be completed within 12 months. It is expected that research results will facilitate publishable manuscripts and support grant applications. Funding is limited to UCSF post-doctoral trainees. Interested investigators should complete the application packet and submit it electronically to Janice Tsoh, Ph.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org (telephone 415-502-8438).
