GlyCORE is pleased to announce our Call for Proposals for the Glycoscience Center of Research Excellence (GlyCORE) Junior Investigator Awards, and Pilot Project Program Awards, with a letter of intent due 3/1/2022.

GlyCORE will support four concurrent Junior Investigator Projects of $175,000/year of direct costs for three years to begin 4/1/2023 and two Pilot Project Program Awards of $50,000/year of direct costs for two years to begin 4/1/2023.  The awards include four mechanisms of support: financial support of the research program, highest priority access to subsidized Research Cores, a required mentorship program, and research dissemination opportunities.
