Intramural Grants

Description of Intramural Grants

Shown below are specific research funds that are available to support or partially support grants to clinicians/scientists that are based in the College of Veterinary Medicine on the OSU Main Campus. Faculty can compete for these funds through the intra-mural grant application mechanism. Unless specified differently, the college grant application format shall be used. Forms can be requested from the Research Office. Application deadlines are published for the year and can be found on the web or requested from the Office of Research.

Forms can be requested from the Research Office. Application deadlines are published for the year and can be found on the web or requested from the Office of Research. Grant applications are reviewed by the Council for Research, ranked, and recommended for funding to the Associate Dean for Research. The Council for Research provides a written critique of the proposal to the benefit of the applicant. Unsuccessful applicants are invited to revise and resubmit their proposal (even repeatedly). The ultimate purpose of all grant applications shall be to generate preliminary data in support of subsequent extra-mural grant applications.

Canine research funds

Legislation allocating money for this research states that it can be used for research and study of diseases of dogs, particularly those transmissible to man. It also provides for research of other diseases of dogs that, by their nature, will provide information applicable to the prevention and treatment of both human and canine illnesses. A portion (25%) of the funds will be targeted for research in areas as they relate to shelter medicine, including but not limited to epidemiology, behavior, infectious disease, and population control.

Equine Research Innovation Funds

The goals of these funds are:

  • to improve the health of horses through innovative and collaborative research
  • perform research that investigates the equine-human bond and the use of horses as companion animals
  • leverage College funds to attract sponsored research and development funds to enhance equine research programs in the College
  • promote the conduct of high quality equine-focused research to bring national and international recognition to College equine research programs
  • provide infrastructure to facilitate educational opportunities for residents, graduate students, post docotoral scientists, and veterinary students performing research in collaboration with equine-focused College faculty members
  • additional critieria

C. Glenn Barber Fund

Note: The instructions and application template for Barber Funds are different from the other intramural grants, and can be found at the following link. BarberFunds

This fund is intended to foster mentored student-based research involving amino acids and their chemistry which includes, but is not restricted to molecular interactions between amino acids, peptides, proteins, protein-protein interactions or their encoding nucleic acids. The intent is to provide student stipends (salary, benefits, tuition and fees) for up to three years during the training interval leading to a doctoral degree.

Applications to the Barber Fund will be evaluated on not only the quality of the prospective student, but also the quality of the proposed research project and mentor. It is expected that the student will play a major role in the writing of this application.

Eligibility:

  • Research projects shall involve protein research
  • The faculty mentor shall have adequate research funding or the prospect for research funding to support the proposed recipient to the completion of his/her PhD program
  • The faculty mentor shall have adequate laboratory space and equipment to complete the proposed research
  • The prospective recipient shall be a full-time PhD student in good standing and shall have successfully completed his/her PhD candidacy examination at the time of application for the Barber Funds

The standard college format for research proposals is not used for this submission. Instead, there is a separate C. Glenn Barber Fund Intramural Application and template.

Paladin veterinary research fund

The estate of Marjorie C. Martin in cooperation with the American Maltese Association has endowed the Paladin Veterinary Research Fund within the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine. The endowment draws annual earnings of about $ 11,000, which become available each August. According to the endowment designation, the income is to be used for research in diseases, defects, injuries, and treatment of Maltese dogs and other toy breeds, with particular emphasis on problems of reproduction, hypoglycemia, risks of surgery, and use of anesthetics. However, as research and veterinary science advance, the need for research in the various topics may change. Paladin proposals can be submitted at the same time as Canine grant applications are due, but need to be clearly marked PALADIN Proposal.

USDA animal health (formula funds)

Purpose: These funds are provided by the USDA for the study of diseases of food animals (including horses). The primary purpose of these awards is to provide seed money for projects leading to submission of proposals to the USDA for special and competitive research grants. Therefore, priority will be given to projects which offer the most promise of success in that competition. Maximum funding target of $15,000 per proposal.
