The ICGA is intended to support innovative and collaborative research from trainees at both the Department of Nanomedicine - Houston Methodist and Rice University. Under this mechanism, 3 projects will be awarded the amount of $10,000 each. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at Rice University and Methodist, as well as research associates on an academic track, instructors on an academic track, and visiting students at Methodist are highly encouraged to apply as principal investigators.
This program provides graduate students with the opportunity to propose, plan, and oversee original research projects! The goal of this program is to develop graduate students as leaders in science, especially in the context of mentorship and group management.
