AI in Artificial Intelligence (AIM) Research Alliance Pilot Funding RFA

The UK artificial intelligence (AI) in Medicine Research Alliance (AIM), in partnership with Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) and Institute for Biomedical Informatics (IBI), is accepting applications for Pilot Projects.

The goal of the CCTS-AIM-IBI Pilot Program is to boost scientific discovery in medicine and promote new standards of care, and clinical and population impact via data generated in clinical care and translational research. The AIM Alliance will advance data-driven science across health-centered Research Priority Areas (RPAs) as defined by the UK Vice president for research, which include cancer, neuroscience, energy, substance use disorder, cardiovascular disease, diabetes & obesity, and substance use disorder. This will potentially open new areas of transdisciplinary research inquiry on AI applications in medicine.  The program will also increase extramural funding at the University of Kentucky in areas of AI and applications in medicine.

The purpose of this funding mechanism is to support development of AI research teams with the resources to compete for externally funded grant awards by providing pilot or preliminary data to support grant applications, manuscripts, and new research teams with focus on applying AI in medicine, especially these RPAs. We encourage the inclusion of a specific notice of funding announcement or grant call.

The awards co-funded by CCTS, AIM and IBI will be $10,000-$25,000 which must be spent over six to 12 months.

The application deadline is January 31, 2022.

This award is open to investigators in the UK faculty eligible to submit and receive externally funded grants. We encourage potential applicants to work with the AIM Leadership to identify a mentoring/collaborating team to assist the investigator.
