The Chancellor’s Discovery program will provide up to $40,000 over a two-year period to support hypothesis-driven multidisciplinary collaborations led by emerging research leaders at UIC.    The purpose of this program is to:

  • Foster new and emerging multidisciplinary partnerships;
  • Nurture the career trajectories of promising early stage investigators;
  • Create pilot data for extramural submissions;
  • Leverage this data into new extramural awards.
