Pilot and Feasibility


The Pennington NORC is pleased to announce a Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program. This program is intended to provide research support to test innovative hypotheses from a multidisciplinary team involving nutrition/obesity-related research. This research should involve some aspect of nutrient absorption, nutrient metabolism, cellular nutrient sensing or signaling, intervention/treatment response, and genetic aspects of nutrition-related chronic diseases. 

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