NINR R01 - Firearm Injury Prevention in Community Healthcare Settings
The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) has posted a Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement. The purpose of this initiative is to advance research that reduces firearm injury and disparities through the development and evaluation of firearm injury primary prevention interventions leveraging community healthcare settings. Projects that include translation into routine practice are also invited. Following the public health model from the 2019 Medical Summit on Firearm Injury Prevention, primary prevention refers to events happening prior to discharge of a firearm, such as safe firearm storage and handling, safety training, screening, community-building and investment, and programs addressing social determinants of health or unmet social needs. Prevention interventions at multiple levels are needed to address firearm morbidity and mortality due to both intentional injury (including suicide) and unintentional injury.

Past Funding Opportunities
PISC x CHERISH Opioid Pilot Grant
The Penn Injury Science Center is happy to team up with CHERISH (Center for Health Economics for Treatment of Substance Use Disorders, HCV, and HIV) on a co-sponsored pilot grant focusing on opioid use disorders. The Letter of Intent is due January 27, 2023. If you choose to submit a LOI/proposal, please clearly identify yourself as a PISC Scholar or Trainee. Details and forms to apply can be found here.
PISC Trainee & Early-Stage Faculty Pilot Grant Program
From the Penn Injury Science Center
The Penn Injury Science Center (PISC) typically provides funding for (2) pilot grants proposals annually, for projects up to $10,000 each, though available funding may vary from year to year.
Pilot projects are expected to support PISC’s mission to reduce injuries and violence and their sequelae through the highest caliber science. Applicants are encouraged to demonstrate a rigorous approach to solve an important scientific problem in injury science and that contributes to building their research program. We accept applications using a Principal Investigator (PI) or multiple Principal Investigator (MPI) mechanism.
PISC Exploratory Grant Program for Penn Faculty
The Penn Injury Science Center (PISC) invites yearly proposals for our CDC-funded Exploratory Grants Program and typically funds one project per year around $15,000-20,000 in direct costs, though available funding may vary from year to year.
The purpose of this program is to support Penn faculty in conducting a rigorous study to serve as the basis to seek long-term extramural funding to grow their area of science. The PI or all MPIs must be a member of the standing or research faculty of Penn.
Exploratory projects are expected to support the mission of PISC – which is to reduce injuries and violence through the highest caliber science. Applicants are encouraged to include more than one discipline and to demonstrate a rigorous approach to solve an important scientific problem in injury science.
