The President’s Research Fund is starting its fifth year of funding projects that have a strong potential for obtaining external funding for SLU investigators. The funds are used to collect preliminary data for a new or related project, and also support cross-disciplinary projects to maximize collaborations across departments and schools at SLU. Applications are accepted twice a year, in May and October. For more information, see the Research Planning Committee website.
