Call for proposals – PReS/CARRA Research Grant

The CARRA and PReS scientific societies have launched a call for proposals to benefit from a research grant.

The purpose of this funding mechanism is to support collaborative research activities between CARRA and PReS early career investigators. Early career investigators are defined as faculty (not fellows) who completed their training/education in the past 10 years. Grant funds may be used to convene meetings, generate preliminary data and/or support collaborative pilot studies. The goal of this funding mechanism is to provide seed funding that allows CARRA and PreS investigators to successfully plan and apply for other grants that could support large-scale collaborative research activities.

Grant applications should show how the applicants will leverage the infrastructure of CARRA and PReS, address priority research topics for both communities, engage patients and extend expertise that would otherwise not be possible working with either group alone.


  • The application must name two co-PIs, one current CARRA member from North America and one current PReS member from outside North America.
  • To be eligible, MD applicants must also be faculty.
  • Applicants must be CARRA or PReS members who are up to date on membership dues and membership information (location, contact information, and membership status) is current and accurate.

This is a great opportunity for a PReS member to foster international collaboration with CARRA members and build the foundation for long-term, sustainable research activities.
