The mission of the PennCHOP Microbiome Program is to facilitate research across campus focused on understanding the microbiome and altering its activity to improve health.

Pilot/Feasibility Grants are designed to bring together microbiome investigators and to stimulate other researchers to enter the field and investigate the influence of the microbiome in their subject areas.

Complete proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. on Feb.16, 2024. Awards will be announced in April.

The Pilot/Feasibility Projects can focus on the microbiota at any body site of the human or animal hosts. Projects can focus on composition and/or function of bacterial, fungal, archaeal, or viral communities as well as their physiological and pathological effects on their hosts.
Up to four microbiome pilots will be awarded, each with up to $50,000 total costs. 

See the full announcement <attached pdf> for more information on eligibility and submission requirements. 

Applications should be submitted in a pdf via email to Jim Burns at [email protected].
