IMCI helps faculty locate and secure external grant funding through our Modeling Access Grant Program and Data Access Grant Program.  We also support research through IMCI Pilot Project Grants

Submitting a proposal through IMCI

Do you plan on submitting a proposal that includes a modeling component? If so we might be a great resource to you and your research team. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Email IMCI Director Holly Wichman with a brief description of the proposal to ensure that it falls under our mission.
  2. Once confirmed, forward her approval and the funding announcement to Michele Mattoon.   Do this as early as possible in the proposal planning process. The earlier you do this, the more we can help you.
  3. Create the proposal in EIPRS, selecting “IMCI” as the department submitting the proposal and adding Michele Mattoon as an editor.
  4. Contact Michele for assistance with the budget and budget justification and other aspects of the submission.
  5. Contact Holly if you need other help or advice with the scientific aspects of proposal.
