UNMC researchers may want to take notice.

Five new Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) funding announcements (PFAs) have been released, offering up to $76 million in support for patient-centered comparative effectiveness research proposals.

Required Letters of Intent (LOIs) to seek funding are due by 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5. The LOIs are now "competitive," meaning they'll be screened for responsiveness and programmatic fit, and only research teams whose proposals meet this test will be invited to submit a full application.

"PCORI provides an outstanding new funding stream for our investigators and these recent announcements include several exciting opportunities," said Chris Kratochvil, M.D., associate vice chancellor for research.

Visit the PCORI funding center to read the full PFAs and see this new blog post for more information on updates to all five PFAs.

PCORI is authorized by Congress to fund and disseminate research that will provide information about the best available evidence to help patients and their health care providers make more informed decisions. PCORI's research is intended to give patients a better understanding of the prevention, treatment, and care options available, and the science that supports those options.
