SCI Workshop 2023: “Big Ideas”

The BREATHE Center announces an exciting opportunity to accelerate impactful discoveries and foster stronger ties between researchers and clinicians at UF, Brooks Rehabilitation, and UFHealth JAX.

We seek innovative proposals to:

  • Amplify Impact: Identify and leverage strengths to accelerate groundbreaking SCI research. We seek innovative strategies with clear, tangible outcomes that move us toward treatment and even cure of SCI.
  • Strengthen Partnerships: Explore avenues to fortify SCI collaborations between UF, UFHealth JAX, and Brooks Rehabilitation. Alternatively, propose fresh approaches to bolster existing partnerships.
  • Broaden Outreach: Expand outreach efforts to engage and educate communities about SCI research and clinical care.

The BREATHE Center has allocated up to $100,000 for winning proposal(s). Please note that small grants to collect pilot data are NOT the goal of this opportunity. The BREATHE leadership team will evaluate proposals based on their potential impact, feasibility, and alignment with Center objectives. Based on a short pitch (see below), selected PIs will collaborate with us to refine and develop the most promising submissions.

Share your visionary ideas on how to propel SCI research and strengthen ties within the SCI community. Let’s collaborate to make a lasting difference!

Proposal Submission Deadline: Friday, December 8
