Dear colleagues,

Due to our faculty’s overwhelming response, the VCU
COVID-19 rapid research funding opportunity will stop accepting new submissions at 5 p.m. today, April 22. Revised applications must be received by 5 p.m. on May 6. We appreciate the interest expressed in the numerous applications reviewed by the VCU COVID-19 Rapid Research Funding Team.

The funding is supported by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation and the Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research. It aims to encourage and enable the rapid expansion of COVID-19 research across a broad range of subject areas to diminish the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the health system and community. 

Please direct questions regarding the funding opportunity or application status to Melissa Throckmorton, director of research development and strategic projects, at

P. Srirama Rao, Ph.D.
Vice President for Research and Innovation
