The funding also will help make phenotyping and genetic sequencing resources available to researchers who wouldn’t otherwise have access, such as junior investigators, James said in the release. Such tools are vital to securing future grants.

OMRF will accept applications for pilot projects over the next five years. The top two will receive funding.

“Pilot projects help researchers who are just starting out begin new, groundbreaking research,” James said.

“Even those who aren’t selected will take part in a mentoring and enrichment program. We help them … gather the kind of preliminary data necessary to compete for federal funding.”
