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

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 six pilot grants will be awarded.

See the full announcement for more information about eligibility, submission requirements, and award terms.

Applications should be submitted in a pdf via email to Jessica Monkoski at [email protected].

Complete proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. on October 22, 2021. Awards will be announced by January 21, 2022.
