Call for Proposals in Population Health: November 13
September 29, 2009, Volume 56, No. 05

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars Program at Penn has set aside a Competitive Research and Education Fund to promote interdisciplinary research and education in population health at Penn. We expect that most of these funds will be used by Penn faculty to develop pilot projects which will attract external support for larger-scale studies, to fund small scale projects, or to develop enduring educational materials that will advance teaching and training in population health concepts or methods within the University. We expect that most grants will be in the range of $2,000 to $20,000 

This call for proposals is open to faculty throughout the Penn community and is intended to: stimulate research and training ideas among the Penn community, help Penn researchers attract support from external sources for large-scale studies, encourage the development of new collaborations between investigators of different backgrounds and disciplines, and encourage the entry of new investigators to the field of population health.

Deadline is November 13, 2009. See www.upenn.edu/rwjhssp for more information.

—Program Directors, David Asch and Robby Aronowitz
