Valley Research Partnership: A Research Collaboration and Training Program
Formerly the Research Development and Partnering Initiative
The Research Office administrates the Valley Research Partnership (VRP) Initiative that funds collaborative grants from participating institutions across the Phoenix area, including primarily the college and the various hospital systems. It provides an important funding stream for projects prior to seeking national funding both for trainees and for faculty investigators. It also provides an important mechanism for aspiring investigators to learn about proposal development and scientific review.
There are three funding mechanisms for the Collaborative Research Program
P1 – Collaborative Medical Student/Resident/Fellow Projects (up to $10,000 over one year).
P2 – Collaborative Projects ($80,000 over one or two years).
P3 – Collaborative Program Development Projects ($200,000, over one or two years).
- Dignity Health.
- The University of Arizona.
- Maricopa Integrated Health Systems.
- Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix.
- Phoenix Children's Hospital.
*Final eligibility is determined by each VRP Partner.
