DEADLINES : LETTER OF INTENT: JANUARY 20|
FULL PROPOSALS: MARCH 5 | AWARD START DATE: JULY 1
| FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES
Clinical/Translational Pilot Awards
Clinical/Translational Research Pilot Awards: $30,000
These awards support individual investigators or small groups conducting preliminary research using human subjects,
tissue, or clinical data. Funds may be used to initiate new research projects or accelerate existing projects.
Multidisciplinary Research Project Pilot Award: $80,000
These awards fund the development of new team-based translational research and complex cross-disciplinary research
projects. Funds may be used for acquisition of pilot data or for program development activities.
Novel Clinical/Translational Methods and Technology Awards: $30,000
These awards support planning activities for further funding proposal submission or pilot studies leading to novel
methodologies for clinical/translational research; and innovative technologies whose application will benefit multiple,
diverse disciplines and enhance clinical/translational research.
|Career Development Awards
Mentor-based Training Bridge Award: $30,000
These awards support clinically-trained junior faculty members to conduct clinical or translational research during mentor-
based training (e.g., K08, K23, KL2) or serve as a bridge between that training and independent peer-reviewed research
funding (e.g., R21, RO1, U01).
New Direction Awards: $30,000
These awards support faculty who are transitioning from a clinical setting to clinical/translational research or from a
research setting to clinical studies through a substantially different direction of research/application.
|Academic-Community Research Partnership Pilot Awards
T2/T3 (Bedside-to-Community) Awards: $30,000
These awards support the following activities: planning activities for further funding proposal submission or pilot studies
using human subjects; gathering data to promote use of translational research; delivering clinical innovations; and
developing evidence-based guidelines and promoting their adoption.
Community-based Health Intervention Awards: $30,000
These awards support planning activities for further funding proposal submission or pilot population-based studies and
community interventions. They may use a variety of methods to interact in communities.
Health and Research Policy Awards: $30,000
These awards support planning activities for further funding proposal submission or pilot projects in health and research
policy around development, conduct, and dissemination of clinical and translational research and health outcomes
evaluation of translational research applications in the community.
|Team Building Incubator Grant: $5,000
This grant provides funding for team-building activities (conferences/workshops/seminars) that promote the SC-CTSI goal of
developing new multidisciplinary research teams that can conduct leading edge clinical and translational research.
