Busch Biomedical Grant (BBG)
The Busch Biomedical Grant program is designed to enhance health-related research at the University and to strengthen the competitive position of faculty members who seek external research funds. Interest income from the Charles and Johanna Busch Memorial Fund is distributed within the University to reflect the stipulations of the Last Will and Testament of Mr. Charles Busch.
Proposals for funding are solicited annually by ORED. Proposals will be reviewed by a panel of faculty representing different health-related disciplines as well as the various University campuses. Awards are made on the basis of Busch Grant funding priorities and scientific excellence.
- Bridging Grants – For extramural competitive renewal grant applications that were reviewed and received a score, but were not funded.
- Seed Grants for Early Stage Faculty
- Collaborative “High Impact” Grants – High impact collaborative proposals from two or more faculty members.
The Busch Biomedical Grant program will support research projects up to a total of $40,000 for up to 2 years. Approximately 10-12 projects are supported each cycle.
