The University of Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core (MRC2), along with the RCMRCs at the NIH West Coast Metabolomics Center 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 are 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.

Investigators must be faculty or equivalent eligible to apply for NIH funding. Junior faculty (Assistant Professor or below) and those who have not previously utilized metabolomics in their research are especially encouraged to apply. Please note that investigators who have extensive use of metabolomic technology in their research program are generally ineligible for funding.
