The Just-In-Time (JIT) Core Usage Funding Program is designed to provide quick access to funding to use any of the JIT Cores (pdf) for research advancing medical knowledge that can improve human health.

The program provides support for investigators:

  1. In obtaining preliminary data that will be used for development of a clinical/translational proposal to be submitted for extramural funding; and/or
  2. In obtaining data that will lead to a concrete improvement in patient care (QA/QI) at Barnes-Jewish Hospital or St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Details are required in the application.

    If your JIT project does not intend to result in one of the above, your project is not eligible for JIT funding.

Refer to the Program Overview (pdf) for specifics, including funding limits and deadlines.

The JIT Core Usage Funding Program is supported by the Washington University Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences, Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the Hope Center for Neurological Disorders, and Siteman Cancer Center.
