JIT Core Usage Funding Program

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

Its purpose is to support investigators in obtaining final data 1) for developing a clinical/translational proposal to be submitted for extramural funding or 2) leading 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.

Below is a brief outline of the program.  Please refer to the Program Overview (right column) for specifics, including funding limits and deadlines.

The Principal Investigator must be a registered member of the ICTS. See ICTS Registration Guidelines for details and online registration. For assistance with registration, contact the ICTS office via email at icts@wustl.edu.

  • PIs from WU or its ICTS partner academic institutions must hold a faculty level appointment.
  • Employees of BJH, Goldfarb School of Nursing, or SLCH (MD, PhD, RN, or allied healthcare professional) may apply with the permission of their department director.

Investigators submit their application via the online submission system to the core(s) from which they are requesting services PRIOR to the deadline to allow appropriate time for review. We recommend early consultation with the core(s) in order to determine the timeline for your application.

All proposals will be reviewed by a committee that includes the ICTS Research Funding Program Director and Co-Directors and invited ICTS faculty as subject area experts.

PIs approved for an award will not receive an allocation. Essentially, a voucher will be issued for the requested services. Upon completion of the services, Core(s) will issue an invoice to the ICTS Administrative Core and, in turn, receive payment.

Funds will be available to the investigator for up to one year.
