CEET & NTI Pilot Grants: June 15
May 12, 2009, Volume 55, No. 33

The Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET) and the Nanotechnology Institute (NTI) announce the availability of pilot project grants for 12-month seed efforts that address any relevant research topic related to the toxicology of nano-particles and nanostructured materials. Projects that characterize the physical and chemical properties of engineered nanoparticles, explore their basic biology and pathobiology, and provide a clear pathway to the clinical and commercial deployment of environmentally safe nanoparticles are particularly encouraged, as are projects that have the potential to generate new or develop existing intellectual property.  

The deadline is June 15, 2009. Awards of up to $25,000 will be made and a start date of July 1, 2009 is anticipated. 

To apply, submit one PDF file to Linda White, senior program administrator, BFTP/SEP, linda@sep.benfranklin.org and a duplicate application to Mary Webster, director of administration, CEET: webster@upenn.edu.
