Center for Genomic Medicine Pilot Awards Request for Proposals


Philanthropic donations to the Center for Genomic Medicine (CGM) will support pilot awards up to $50,000. This has replaced the Utah Genome Project Pilot Program.

The mission of the CGM is to bring together patients, providers, and researchers to discover the genetic causes of disease and translate these discoveries into better diagnoses, treatments, and prevention strategies.


  • Deadline for submission is Thursday, March 31st, 2022, midnight local time
  • Decisions will be made by May 31st, 2022
  • Funding will start July 1st, 2022

Research Scope

CGM invites applications that build upon the mission as stated above. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Clinical or public health translation and impact of genomic medicine and discoveries
  • Landscape of human somatic mosaicism
  • Large scale screens of functional variants
  • Multi-omic integration
  • Studies exploring the variability of penetrance and expressivity of human genetic conditions
  • Clinical implementation of multi-SNP and polygenic risk score
  • Development of new computational or statistical methods that empower genomic medicine
  • Health economics of genetic testing

The Center for Genomic Medicine strongly encourages projects to consider the following:

  • Clinical implementation
  • Diversity
  • Ethical Legal and Social Implications (ELSI)
