The Nebraska Center for the Prevention of Obesity Diseases through Dietary Molecules (NPOD) seeks to identify a new cohort of project leaders. The NPOD is funded by a Center for Biomedical Research Excellence grant (award number P20GM104320) from the NIH, and builds research infrastructure in obesity research and nutrient signaling at UNL and UNMC.
The NPOD supports up to five project leaders at any given time. Project leader funding is the highest level of support provided by NPOD, and project leaders will be paired with mentors to guide them to success, defined as securing independent federal funding.
Letters of intent are due August 1, 2016, with a funding start date of June 1, 2017.
