A minimum of two Co-Principal Investigators is required for DISP applications. Individuals who hold instructional, research or clinical track faculty positions at the University of Michigan are eligible to apply as Co-Principal Investigators. The intent of this grant is to foster new interdisciplinary collaborations on campus. However, applications for new research initiatives from productive scientists with previous collaborations are not excluded from consideration. Each Co-Principal Investigator must provide critical intellectual as well as technical input into projects funded by a DISP grant. Individuals who receive the 2021-22 MDRC DISP grant are not eligible to receive a 2021-22 MDRC Pilot/Feasibility Grant.
