The purpose of the Scholar's Program is to increase the pool of extramurally funded, clinically oriented researchers at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Dartmouth College. The Program offers three years of career development support to promising young investigators committed to clinically oriented research and who are members of academic departments committed to their career.
The Michael T. Shoob Program Project Grant is designed for faculty researchers seeking support to initiate pilot or feasibility studies with the goal of generating data that will support a program project application to be submitted for extramural funds.
Research Grants from the Henry Heyl Fund and general fund income, for pilot studies and small discrete research projects:
To develop pilot data to be used as the basis for submission of research applications to national funding sources.
To encourage research by young investigators and those new to the Medical Center who have not yet gained outside funding.
To encourage clinical research at the Medical Center.
To provide support for established investigators with a new research emphasis.
Compliance with Dartmouth College and D-H Conflict of Interest policies and procedures is required prior to release of funds, as is written approval from CPHS and the IACUC
