The University of Michigan Center for Gastrointestinal Research (UMCGR) invites applications for microbiome-related Pilot Projects that are focused on interactions between gut microbes and the gut epithelium.  Funded projects will take advantage of a new service provided by the Microbiome Core that permits simultaneous cultivation of strictly anaerobic bacteria with a 2-dimensional colonic epithelium derived from human colonic stem cells.

Initiated in 2012, the Lilly Innovation Fellowship Award (LIFA) program was created to identify and foster exceptional post-doctoral scientists pursuing ground breaking research projects. The prestigious LIFA program pairs a post-doctoral scientist with their academic mentor and a Lilly scientist, who serves as an industry mentor, to advance an innovative research proposal developed by the fellow.
