Intermountain Precision Genomics Call for Research Proposals

Intermountain Healthcare’s mission is to help people live the healthiest lives possible. Translational research has an important role in leading us to accomplish that mission. We strive to support researchers and investigators by combining expertise in next generation sequencing with emphasis on projects in precision medicine. Our access to samples through the Intermountain Biorepository and the Intermountain Healthcare Network for prospective and retrospective studies will leverage your best ideas. We aim to help you link genomics to innovation.

Our Summer 2018 call for research proposals is now closed. We will be announcing awards by October 1, 2018. Thank you to all investigators who made submissions.

We are now calling for brief research proposals to be submitted by groups interested in using Intermountain Precision Genomics next generation sequencing services for precision medicine applications. Intermountain Precision Genomics will match up $100,000 for proposals that are innovative, creative, and advance our mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible. Funds are designated to cover costs of procuring, preparing, and sequencing samples at Intermountain, and exclude indirect costs and investigator salaries.
