Funding Opportunity: ACCOuNT TCC now accepting pilot grant applications

The African American Pharmacogenomic Consortium Network Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center (ACCOuNT TCC) was created to:

  1. establish an African Ancestry pharmacogenomics research network to facilitate genomic research and to establish a public genomics resource for continued translational research;
  2. establish mechanisms to support implementation, diffusion, and continuing evaluation and improvement of precision medicine in African Americans; and
  3. engage community leaders in African American pharmacogenomic research. As part of this commitment, ACCOuNT will provide funding for a pilot grant program that will accelerate the uptake of cardiovascular pharmacogenomics research findings among community physicians and patients.

Two projects focused on African American cardiovascular pharmacogenomics, or how a person’s genes impact their reaction to drugs for the heart and blood vessels, will be awarded each year. Awards will be made for up to $25,000 for each project.

Applications must be submitted by March 27, 2020 at 5:00 pm CDT
