SURPASS will provide cross-divisional teams funding to support up to 5 projects for investment for projects that have the potential to lead to upwards of $100 million in external funding. Priority will be given to projects that offer impactful translational research and propose a viable path toward translation. The initial award period will be 18 months with possible extension to a multi-year performance period. Successful projects will be eligible for additional investment by SURPASS and other JHU programs following the primary period of performance. These select projects will be eligible to apply for another round of funding. The goal of this investment is not only to develop revolutionary new technology, but also to build interdivisional teams, facilitate collaboration, and increase joint staff/faculty appointments. SURPASS will break the mold for the way university divisions work together.
