UK CURE Alliance Pilot Funding
The three cores of the UK CURE Alliance request applications for funding to support COVID-19 research projects across the entire research spectrum, from foundational basic science research to population level outcomes research.
Funding is available in three categories: health and biomedical science, materials and methods, and social science.
Full-time faculty (all title series including regular, research, clinical and special) at the University of Kentucky are eligible to apply.
- The COVID-19 Biobank will initially be collecting specimens from patients who have tested positive or are showing signs consistent with COVID-19.
- The Clinical Research Unit provides expert nursing and coordinator support and dedicated facilities for patient-oriented research, including inpatient and ambulatory studies
- Data Extraction Consultations include data extraction from UK HealthCare, UK Health Plan, KMSF, VIZIENT, Humana CHI, Truven Health Analytics, Appalachian Patient Stroke Recovery and Research Registry, and HIDOSD
- Participant Recruitment Services assists in developing recruitment plan, creating recruitment materials, and promoting IRB-approved studies
- Regulatory Knowledge and Support Core can provide assistance with study start-up, maintenance, and study close-out.
A full list of other CCTS services is available here.
- For assistance registering an interventional clinical trial on clinicaltrials.gov please contact Emily Bradford.

- SARS-CoV-2 receptor binding domain (RBD) protein – His tagged. Prepared in mammalian cells.
100 µg - $75.00, 1 mg - $400
- For a description of the construct see Amanat et al. (medRxiv, 2020)
- If interested contact Lou Hersh, PhD.
- The Physics Machine Shop fabricates models and devices for our research and instructional efforts, and serves multiple departments besides ours. Our shop staff have many decades of experience assisting faculty with design, prototyping, and production of devices and components. The Machine Shop's automated machining facilities can create finished products with a high degree complexity and precision from a variety of materials.
- The Physics Electronics Shop assists with prototyping and production of electronic parts and equipment.
- The Center for Advanced Materials hosts sophisticated equipment for synthesizing novel materials and measuring their electrical, magnetic and optical properties. Several of our faculty associated with this Center have extensive experience with materials synthesis and would be available to assist any efforts involving development of new materials.
- If interested in accessing any of these resources, please contact Alfred Shapere, PhD.
