The goal of this pilot project funding is to help initiate new research collaborations in the field of free radical biology and medicine, which will ultimately enhance investigators’ competitiveness for multi-PI/joint-PI extramural funding.
The Free Radicals in Medicine Program (FRMP) seeks to promote the development of new multi-PI collaborative research projects focusing on the role of free radicals, oxidants, and/or antioxidants in the pathogenesis of human disease. The overall mission of the FRMP is to:
1. Promote and stimulate the development of collaborative research programs between clinical and basic scientists with a focus on free radicals in biology and disease
2. Use interdisciplinary approaches to advance the scientific knowledge of how oxidants and antioxidants contribute to the pathogenesis of human disease
3. Provide expertise and training in the use of these interdisciplinary approaches to the University’s biomedical trainees, including medical students, graduate students, residents, and postdoctoral fellows
