CRN Regenerative Nanomedicine Catalyst Award Program

The Center for Regenerative Nanomedicine promotes new research through Regenerative Nanomedicine Catalyst Projects. Principal investigators (PIs) must hold tenured or tenure-track faculty appointments at Northwestern University, and multi-disciplinary projects with multiple PIs are welcome.

The purpose of this program is to jump-start early-stage translational multi-disciplinary research that uses nanotechnology strategies to address important biological, clinical, or biomedical research problems related to regenerative medicine. CRN Catalyst Projects must have a clear path to building an externally funded program at Northwestern University or a clear translational pathway for Northwestern intellectual property. Catalyst research must propose a well-defined goal that can be achieved within a one-year time frame.

Application deadlines vary and each request for applications will be widely advertised by email and on Northwestern University websites, including those of CRN and IBNAM. The Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querry Center for Regenerative Nanomedicine provides funding for this program and the Institute for BioNanotechnology in Medicine manages the application/review process and administers the awards.
