FBJH-ICTS Funding Program

The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital (FBJH) and the Washington University Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) announce the 9th annual FBJH/ICTS Clinical and Translational Funding Program.


All Principal Investigators applying for this funding must be members of the ICTS. Member eligibility information and registration are available at http://www.icts.wustl.edu/icts-researchers/membership. Additional eligibility requirements are detailed in the RFA.


The Clinical and Translational Research Funding Program provides members of the ICTS with the opportunity to apply for funds to advance medical knowledge that can improve human health. This program supports:

  • New investigators in either clinical or translational research who do not yet have their own peer-reviewed research support
  • Established investigators who are working in other fields, but are interested in exploring new directions in clinical and/or translational research
  • Established investigators already active in the field of clinical and translational research, but whose proposed project is different from their previous work
  • Investigators collaborating with community-based organizations
  • Investigators developing inter- or multidisciplinary groups working on novel methodologies or research teams working on a clinical problem of interest and importance

Specific Aims of the Program

  • To facilitate the development and implementation of novel clinical and translational research methodologies into human studies
  • To improve the quality of patient care, enhance patient safety and improve patient outcomes
  • To improve the transfer of research discoveries to practice


FBJH and the ICTS expect to issue an annual call for proposals with award types determined each year based on FBJH and ICTS program priorities.
