Being a MAISRC researcher

There are two ways to become affiliated with MAISRC as a researcher. One is by receiving funding through MAISRC, and the other is by gaining partnership status on a project that's funded elsewhere. Each scenario comes with a set of expectations and benefits.

Partnership projects

Partnership projects are funded by sources outside of MAISRC and do not need to, but are strongly encouraged to, be focused on research priorities.

MAISRC has a partnership project approval process which includes the researcher discussing the proposal with the Director, an informal review by the MAISRC Fellows Group, and proposal routing. View the full partnership project approval process here.

Receiving funding from MAISRC

MAISRC has a competitive RFP process for research studies to advance the control, prevention, and early detection of AIS in Minnesota. Proposals are invited from investigators at any Minnesota-based academic or governmental research institution.

Projects are expected to use state-of the-art techniques and approaches. Anticipated funding availability is July 2018 through June 2020. View all the RFP details here. The deadline for pre-proposals in January 5, 2018.
