Eligibility to apply for a Pilot and Feasibility project grant is not dependent on Center membership and is open to all faculty and non-tenured faculty members of the scientific community at the University of Iowa. No investigator can receive funding for a pilot project more than once. This program is open to:

  • New investigators who have never had extramural support for their research program.
  • Established investigators who are currently performing research outside gene therapy and CF, but wish to apply their expertise to a problem relevant to CF.
  • Established investigators currently performing CF and/or gene therapy research, but who wish to investigate a novel idea that represents a significant departure from currently funded research.
