General Research Funds:
Each year the Dean of the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine allots general research funds to facilitate programmatic growth in the basic, translational and clinical research arenas. The Internal Awards Committees, made up of the Scientific Awards Committee
and Administrative Committee
, mimic the NIH funding mechanism. The Scientific Awards Committee reviews and ranks proposals based on their scientific merit. The Administrative Committee makes funding decisions for all internal awards at the Miller School.
