Funding Opportunity: Innovative Pain Research Grant

Funding Opportunity: Innovative Pain Research Grant

The UW Medicine Department of Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine in collaboration with the Scan│Design Foundation have announced a funding program designed to support new and innovative pain research. This opportunity was created to encourage investigators to propose exciting ideas which may appear too speculative for traditional funding mechanisms.

According to their funding announcement, the ultimate goal of this program is to “improve the lives of people affected by pain” by funding projects which are likely to produce “high impact findings.”

The funding announcement also emphasizes that the opportunity is open to all disciplines, all career stages, and encourages novel interprofessional collaborations.
