Grants funded by the Foods for Health Discovery Theme:
The FFH Seed Grant Competition is a university-wide initiative with a primary goal of advancing the use of metabolomics-based technology in food and nutrition research for the improvement of global health.
FFH Research Team Grants support multi-college teams of researchers in the development of ideas to further a common research interest advancing the Foods for Health mission. A maximum of $10,000 is available to support up to five research teams in 2017-18, with a $2,000 maximum budget to support the development of each new collaboration. Examples of use of funds include, but are not limited to: team meetings, hosting seminar speakers, conducting a workshop or mini-symposium, and/or hiring a facilitator. Creative ideas are welcome!

Pilot and Feasibility Grants
Pilot and Feasibility Grants are a component of the NIH Common Fund Metabolomics Program to promote the use of metabolomics in the broader research community via collaboration with NIH-funded Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Centers (RCMRCs) across the nation. The program goal is to enhance metabolomics research crucial to translational projects by providing investigators who are new to the metabolomics field the opportunity to explore the use of metabolomics in their research and support high-risk and high-impact research. Funding is available through each of the following centers (applications due March 2017):
- NIH West Coast Metabolomics Center
- The Penn Medicine Diabetes Research Center
- University of Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core
- Resource Center for Stable Isotope-Resolved Metabolomics at University of Kentucky
- Southeast Center for Integrated Metabolomics
- Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core
