Biostatistics, Epidemiology & Research Design Grants

The Biostatistics, Epidemiology & Research Design (BERD) mini-methods grant program offers one-year awards of up to $25,000 to investigators developing methodology in study design, measurement, statistical analysis, and approaches to the integration of quantitative and qualitative data analysis (i.e., mixed methods) relevant to translational research. The program is distinct from the NJ ACTS pilot grant program and is open to investigators at Princeton University, Rutgers University and NJIT who are eligible to apply for external funding with PI status through their home institutions.
