UK Alliance Pilot Grant Awardees

This award is for investigators at all stages of career development (early career, midlevel, and senior investigators) and is intended to support high impact projects that align with the mission of the ADORE (diabetes/obesity), K-RALD (lung disease) or the SPORE (GI cancer) Alliance. 
 

There will be three separate co-funded awards, one per alliance limited to $50,000 which must be spent over 12 months.
