BIRI Seed Grants
The Biomedical Imaging Research Institute (BIRI) is offering limited seed grants for Cedars-Sinai researchers needing assistance collecting pilot data for the purpose of grant applications. Approved projects are given certain number of hours of imaging time (including technical assistance). The researcher is responsible for the costs of any supplies (including contrast agents or isotopes). Interested researchers should submit a BIRI Seed Grant Application along with a Project Application Form to email@example.com. Applications are reviewed and approved based on a peer-review process and availability of the imaging systems.
Researchers who receive a BIRI Seed Grant agree to the following requirements:
- Submit a BIRI Seed Grant Progress Report every 6 months
- Acknowledge the research support on all related abstracts, publications, and presentations using the following statement:
“The imaging portion of this research was supported in part by the Biomedical Imaging Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center."
- Provide BIRI a copy of all publications by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Budget sufficient funds for imaging studies in future grant applications
