Pilot and Feasibility


The Pennington NORC is pleased to announce a Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program (the full text of the Application Instructions can be found here

 The major objective of this program is to provide research support to develop preliminary data and/or novel methods from individuals or multidisciplinary teams involving nutrition/obesity-related research.

 The NORC will give highest priority to translational research related to nutrition/obesity throughout the lifespan.  The hope for a P&F award is that it will generate enough preliminary data for the investigator to obtain extramural research funding from the NIH (e.g., R01). 

  • Submission Deadline for LOI: May 31, 2021
