Internal Application deadline: December 31, 2023

Limited submission opportunities are those for which the agencies restrict the number of proposals or nominations a university may submit for consideration for an award. Extra submissions can result in rejection of all submitted by the institution. Therefore, all eligible and interested nominees must be internally screened to determine which will represent the university in the agency’s competition. This application is for the nomination from our institution.

The Robert J. Kleber, Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation is seeking highly innovative and groundbreaking medical research proposals from top tier institutions in both basic biological and applied research that will have the greatest impact on scientific knowledge and human health. Proposals should be distinctive and novel in their approaches, question the prevailing paradigm, and lead to advancement of knowledge in the field. A highly qualified scientific advisory committee will review all proposals. Applications are highly competitive. Priority is given to organizations with whom the Foundation has had a long-standing relationship, preferably in Texas.
