The University of Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core (MRC2)—along with the RCMRCs at the NIH West Coast Metabolomics Center at UC Davis, NIH Eastern Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core at RTI International, Southeast Center for Integrated Metabolomics (SECIM), Metabolomics Core at Mayo Clinic, Resource Center for Stable Isotope-Resolved Metabolomics—is offering funding for exploratory projects utilizing metabolomics technology.

The P/F program is intended to provide opportunities for investigators to advance basic, clinical and translational biomedical science by incorporating metabolomic technologies into their research program. 

The goal of this program is to enable investigators to generate a sufficient body of preliminary information for a successful application for major research funding from NIH or other national granting agencies.

Faculty or equivalent eligible to apply for NIH funding. We especially encourage applications from junior faculty (Assistant Professor or below) and those who have not previously utilized metabolomics in their research.

Note:  Investigators who have extensive use of metabolomic technology in their research program are generally ineligible for funding.

Questions about the P/F grant program can be directed to: Alla Karnovsky, PhD.,, Director, MRC2 P/F Grant program.
