Joint Institute re-activates call for proposals, places new priority on COVID research

After disruptions because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Michigan Medicine-Peking University Health Science Center Joint Institute (JI) has announced the reactivation of the 2020 grant awards cycle.

The request for proposals (RFP) was put on hold this spring as both institutions grappled with COVID-19 patient surges. The re-activated RFP includes a new project priority on COVID-related research. Letters of intent are due Dec. 2, 2020.

“We are pleased to be able to reinstate this opportunity for researchers from across the health science disciplines with active collaborations at Peking University Health Science Center,” said JI administrative lead Huang, MD, MHSA. “Our partnership remains strong, and both institutions feel the JI can play an important role in the global effort to confront the pandemic.”
