On behalf of the Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources (Statler) and the School of Medicine (SoM), we are pleased to announce an exciting opportunity to stimulate externally funded collaborative biomedical engineering research. This opportunity is made possible through the support of the Byars-Tarnay Endowment in the WVU Foundation. The endowment was established to build biomedical engineering programs for the Statler College with the SoM.
We anticipate making up to 3 to 4 one-year awards of up to $50,000 each to faculty teams demonstrating innovative, interdisciplinary collaborations in biomedical engineering research. Funded projects must clearly enhance the capabilities of the research teams and their competitiveness to secure extramural grant funding. The project lead investigator is normally expected to be from Engineering and/or Medicine. New, transformative ideas/concepts that could lead to new directions/collaborations are encouraged and prior results/data are not a prerequisite.
