W.W. Smith Charitable Trust

The W.W. Smith Charitable Trust (http://www.wwsmithcharitabletrust.org/) supports basic medical research in heart-related research; grants seeking such support are due at the foundation Sept 15, 2012. (Please note that cancer and AIDS research has a different deadline)

Because the number of proposals that can be submitted to the Trust are limited for each institution, Drexel will hold an internal competition to determine which proposal will be submitted on behalf of the university.

For this purpose, interested investigators should submit a three page summary of their proposed project together with the CVs of the PI and Co-PIs (if any). Font size must be no smaller than 11 pt Arial; appendices are not permitted. References may be placed on a separate page.

Internal proposals must be submitted to research@drexel.edu as a single PDF file. The file name must contain the name of the PI. The subject line of the submission must contain "W.W. Smith Proposal". Internal proposals must be submitted by 5 PM Wed August 29, 2012.
