Funding for Musculoskeletal Research Projects — The Johns Hopkins Center for Musculoskeletal Research announces the availability of funding for pilot and feasibility projects.

The CMR funds are available to encourage innovative research in pathogenic mechanisms, basic science and therapeutic approaches related to muscle and bone research.

Three grants of $30,000 (direct costs only) for a one-year pilot will be awarded, with eligibility to apply for a one-year competitive renewal.

Junior investigators without current or past NIH research support, or established investigators who would like to transition to a new career focus, are encouraged to apply.

The deadline for submission of the letter of intent for the 2012 grants is Jan. 4.
