11. DETAILS OF RESEARCH PROPOSAL

Instruction and Guide for details of research proposal.

Give a description of the research in no more than 5 pages. (Note that proposals with more than 5
pages will be rejected).           Information SHOULD include specific aim(s) of the project,
scientific/clinical significance, preliminary studies/progress reports, methods, contribution of each
Co-Principal Investigator (Co-PI) and Collaborators. Emphasize on the novelty and innovative
aspects of the proposed work. Proposal must leverage on peer-reviewed research previously
conducted by both Co-PIs. References should be provided on a separate page and will not be
counted to the 5 pages allocated for the main description.

a) Specific Aims
State concisely the aims of the research project and/or the hypothesis that is to be tested. Since
the duration and funding of the research are capped at 3 years, your aims and proposed
research work should be achievable within this period.

b) Scientific/Clinical Significance
Express clearly the relevance of your proposal and its contributions to health and/or science. Briefly
sketch the background to the current proposal, critically evaluate existing knowledge and
specifically identify the gaps which the project is intended to fill. There is no necessity to provide a
lot of background information on the general health problem. Instead, describe how your research
will contribute to (i) solving the health problem; (ii) develop new knowledge; (iii) develop scientific
and clinical applications; and (iv)provide tangible improvements in life sciences/healthcare. You
should include both short term (3-5 years) and possible long term implications. Append relevant
references.

c) Previous Peer Reviewed Research Studies
Provide a succinct account of published and unpublished results of both Co-PIs’ previous research
on which the current project is based. Indicate the importance of the findings for these projects. List
the titles and complete references to all publications and completed manuscripts that have resulted
from the project.

d) Methods
Describe the experimental design and the procedure to be used to accomplish the specific aims of
the project. Describe in detail the protocols to be used and the tentative sequence of the
investigation. Include statistical justification and the means by which data will be analysed and
interpreted. Where appropriate, describe sample recruitment and characteristics such as number,
gender, ethnicity, etc and provide an estimate of the likely effect size and the sample size required
to detect this (power analysis). Describe any new methodology and its advantage over existing
methodologies. Discuss the potential difficulties and limitations of the proposed procedures and
alternative approaches to achieve the aims. Point out any procedures, situations or materials that
may be hazardous to personnel and the precautions to be exercised. Co-PIs should also mention
who else in the world are working in similar areas and highlight the key/main competitors. Make
every attempt to be succinct.

e) Expertise, roles and contributions of Co-PIs and Collaborators
Describe the roles of the Co-PIs and Collaborators involved in the project. Specify the research
background, technical competencies, role and contribution to specific deliverables and
achievements that are relevant and necessary to ensure success for the proposed research. State
the applicants’ publications and patents held related to this research proposal. Provide letters of
support or equivalent from Collaborators for this section.

f) References
List in chronological order the full titles and complete references to recent representative
publications pertinent to this research proposal.

16. BUDGET INFORMATION


      PROPOSED BUDGET

      You are advised to prepare the budget carefully under each category and provide the details
      and justifications for all categories in Section 17.

      An aggregate budget for each category is not acceptable.

      Only expenses directly related to the proposed project are allowed. Overhead charges
                                                                                              5
      (Indirects) and contingency funds are not allowed to be included in this proposed budget .

      Funding for equipment is typically about $100 000 for such projects.
                                                                                                       nd
