Apply for funds for your next biomedical related program!

Student groups, faculty, and others are welcome to apply.

Arizona Biomedical Research Centre (ABRC) provides funding to accelerate promising research toward clinical testing and breakthroughs designed to improve the health of all Arizonans. In working with Arizona researchers and through its commitment to the Arizona Biosciences Roadmap, ABRC identified a need to make high quality educational resources available. The Research Education Program seeks to create a shared sense of community by bringing national and local experts together to engage Arizona researchers and clinical professionals in emerging topics at little or no cost to the research community. The goals of this program are to strengthen the knowledge, skills, and abilities of Arizona researchers, as well as encourage collaboration and networking.

ABRC currently contracts with state universities to provide ongoing research education and training in the form of conferences and workshops. These events have a common connection:

  • Are at little or no cost to participants
  • Enable a shared sense of community among biomedical researchers
  • Engage researchers and clinical professionals in emerging topics of importance
  • Deliver high quality programming

Since 2017, Arizona State University (ASU) through Research Development (RD) has hosted a variety of events with ABRC grant funds. We have reached well over 1,000 attendees across the state of Arizona.

Research Development is pleased to open this invitation for proposals from ASU faculty for events designed to accomplish the above ABRC objectives, as well as the following ASU objectives:

  • Demonstrable impact on faculty and/or students involved in more than one ASU school or unit
  • Convening of one or more biomedical stakeholders in Arizona at or near ASU’s campuses
  • Advancing one or more of the New American University Design Principles
    • Leveraging Our Place
    • Transform Society
    • Value Entrepreneurship
    • Conduct Use-Inspired Research
    • Enable Student Success
    • Fuse Intellectual Discipline
    • Be Socially Embedded
    • Engage Globally

Awards: Total available funding is $80,000 for one calendar year (2022). We expect to award two (2) to three (3) large events (budget range $10,000 to $20,000) and two (2) to three (3) small events (budget range $2,000 to $10,000). Applicant budgets cannot exceed $20,000 and cannot include overhead costs. The period of performance will be the calendar year (January through December), with a specific date or date range expected for the event articulated in the proposal.
