On November 17, the funding opportunity, “Addressing LGBTQ Health Disparities through Translational Research” will open. This pilot grant was created in response to the call for more research resources, one of the topics discussed at the symposium on LGBTQ Bullying held this past May. The event was organized by the committee led by Mark Schuster, director of the Harvard Catalyst Health Disparities Research Program.

This funding opportunity seeks to engage a broad range of clinical, public health, public policy, law, education, and other investigators from across the Harvard community, and will provide seed money for cutting-edge, collaborative, interdisciplinary translational research to enhance understanding of LGBTQ health disparities and interventions that may address these disparities. Applicants may request awards up to $50,000.

The letter of intent (LOI) is due on December 12, 2016, and the deadline to submit the full application is March 6, 2017.
