Team-Science Pilot Projects Program
2019 Call for Abstracts
We are pleased to announce an opportunity for investigators to apply for pilot funds. Ola HAWAII (Health And Wellness Achieved by Impacting Inequalities) will be responsible to grow and support a community of health disparities scholars to determine the causes of and interventions for health disparities in the Pacific. Please see attachment for details.
RESEARCH SCOPE: Proposals that focus on the science of health disparities among Native Hawaiians, Pacific islanders, Filipino, and/or other populations in Hawaii will be considered highly responsive to this call for abstracts. In addition, abstracts which involve basic, clinical and/or biobehavioral methods and leverage robust transdisciplinary partnerships and linkages between basic science, clinical and behavioral medicine and/or community engagement, leading to adoption of best practices, are highly encouraged. Ola HAWAII is indeed open to the full spectrum of life science research. That is, proposals involving fundamental research seeking new knowledge about basic molecular mechanisms, using newly developed tools or repurposing existing tools, will also be given full consideration.
