SPARC Clinical-Research Exchange Fellowship RFA info session
December 4, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Penn State Strategic Initiatives, via the thematic priority of Enhancing Health, has provided funding for an exchange fellowship to stimulate partnerships among faculty clinicians and non-clinician faculty researchers and engineers, bridging interests, resources and expertise to unite patient care with other scholarly disciplines.
This session will provide information on this opportunity. Participants may join via Zoom.
The SPARC exchange fellowship will allow each partner to immerse in the other partner’s realm. Clinical faculty members will spend time in scholarly contexts across the University, and non-clinician faculty members will spend time in the clinical environment.
The goal of the SPARC program is to initiate and nurture interdisciplinary collaborations as a powerful way to address unmet medical needs while simultaneously expanding health sciences research at Penn State. Applications in response to this RFA may initially request up to $7,500 per partner for teaching or clinical buyout (minimum 5 percent effort, maximum 10 percent effort) for a six-month period (Level 1 Funding).
