Precision Health Project Proposals Due Oct. 6

Cedars-Sinai Precision Health has issued a request for proposals to fund Cedars-Sinai investigators in 2017-18. This initiative aims to drive the development of the newest technology and best research, coupled with the finest clinical practice, to deliver precise and personalized healthcare solutions rapidly to Cedars-Sinai patients.

Summary proposal applications, including a single-page summary proposal, must be submitted by Friday, Oct. 6. About three to six grants of $50,000-$250,000 each will be awarded. All Cedars-Sinai faculty and affiliated physicians and scientists are encouraged and eligible to apply for this award.

Eligible applications should address one or more of the following Precision Health focus areas:

  • The implementation and/or evaluation of precision health solutions for a specific Cedars-Sinai patient population to improve clinical outcomes, efficiency and/or control costs
  • The development of diagnostics to stratify diverse patient phenotypes, to monitor disease transitions (including from pre-disease to disease) and/or to monitor the efficacy of therapy
  • The training of Cedars-Sinai faculty, staff, fellows and residents and/or students in precision health topic areas that are necessary to develop the workforce required to advance the goals of precision health. This focus area is new for 2017-18
  • The translation of preclinical findings into the development of novel therapeutics or therapeutic targets

This is the second round of grants to be offered under Cedars-Sinai Precision Health. The initiative last year awarded a total of $775,000 to eight projects. Applicants who were previously awarded Precision Health projects are eligible and encouraged to reapply with new projects.

Summary proposal applications and questions about this request for proposals should be submitted to precisionhealth@cshs.org. For more information, please click on the PDF link below.
