As an internal grant funding program of the ICTS, the Clinical and Translational Research Funding Program (CTRFP) awards projects that promote the translation of scientific discoveries into improvement in human health. Funding is provided by the ICTS, The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital and our partner institutions: Saint Louis University, St. Louis College of Pharmacy and the University of Missouri-Columbia.
Awards will be considered for:
- Clinical/Translational Projects whose goals are to promote the translation of scientific discoveries into human health. Awards in this category will provide up to $50,000 direct costs for 1 year.
- Community-Engaged Research Projects that involve established partnerships with communities and/or stakeholders whose health and well-being and/or service provision could be most impacted by the research. Awards in this category will provide up to $50,000 direct costs for 1 year.
- Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design Projects provide up to $25,000 for 1 year to facilitate innovative methodology development with clinical and translational science needs.
All Principal Investigators applying for this funding must be members of the ICTS. Member eligibility information and registration are available here.
The ICTS expects to issue an annual call for proposals with award types determined each year based on program priorities.
