Exploratory Research Program

The WVU ICRC Exploratory Research Program is designed to stimulate new injury prevention and control research.  The primary intent of the program is to enable the conduct of small projects, and the collection of pilot data that leads to the subsequent development of larger, independently-funded investigations.  The availability of funding for exploratory grants will periodically be announced and disseminated to all WVU faculty members and all external ICRC faculty affiliates. Application procedures will be posted and maintained on our website.

The establishment and maintenance of a competitive program of research pilot projects has been critical to the rapid development of our Center’s research portfolio.  We have supported twelve (12) pilot projects since 2005.

Current pilot programs are described on the Current Exploratory Projects page.
Previously completed pilot projects are described on the Completed Projects page.
