Funding Opportunities

The Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Core offers researchers the following opportunities for funding support:

Pilot and Feasibility Grants

Supporting new metabolomics researchers through Pilot and Feasibility Grants is a crucial element of education in the Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Core.

NIH Collaborative Activities to Promote Metabolomics Research

The NIH offers yearly administrative supplements to increase and improve the nation's ability to undertake metabolomics analyses in translational and clinical research.

The NIH believes that the field of metabolomics has great potential to advance the understanding of human diseases, but requires specialized expertise in metabolomics study design, technology, and data analysis and interpretation.

These annual funding opportunities provide supplemental funds to current NIH-funded research projects for new interactive collaborations between basic or clinical researchers and metabolomics experts to add a metabolomics approach to the existing research strategy for the project.

In addition to enhancing the parent grant by adding metabolomics analyses, collaborative projects must include activities to increase the expertise of the biomedical research group in key aspects of metabolomics study design, analysis and data interpretation.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the core director to prepare the application. Contact the lab.

NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01)

The NIH believes that it is critical to have highly trained individuals who understand the field of metabolomics and can work and communicate with clinicians and other health professionals to perform, analyze and interpret the data obtained from metabolomics studies.

The NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award provides salary and research support for a sustained period of protected time (three to five years) for postdoctoral and clinical fellows or investigators who meet the definition of an NIH new investigator to pursue intensive research training in the field of metabolomics under the guidance of an experienced mentor who has an established research record in metabolomics.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the core director to prepare the application. Contact the lab.
