Clinical and Translational Research Funding Program
Washington University Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) announce the 12th annual Clinical and Translational Research Funding Program (CTRFP). Annually, the CTRFP receives over 100 applications and awards approximately $1M for 20 investigator-initiated projects. These projects are supported with funding from the ICTS and our partner institutions including The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Saint Louis University, and the University of Missouri-Columbia.
Awards will be considered for:
- Pilot Grants: Provide up to $50,000 direct costs for 1 year to facilitate the planning of a new clinical and/or translational research project. Pilot grants are typically used to fund developmental or early stage work, including collecting pilot data, and should describe a concrete plan for further steps beyond the pilot grant.
- Community-Engaged Research Projects: Provide up to $50,000 direct costs for 1 year to fund active partnerships with stakeholders and communities (including patients, patient organizations, governmental agencies, community-based clinicians), and other groups whose health, well-being and service provision may be influenced by the results of the proposed study.
- Innovative Analytical Methodology: Provide up to $25,000 for 1 year of seed funding to facilitate new 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 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:
ICTS expects to issue an annual call for proposals with award types determined each year based on program priorities.
