DEADLINE: Exploratory CTSA Collaborative Innovation Awards (R21) Application

Translating biomedical discoveries into real-world applications is essential to improving human health. It’s a complex process that can result in delays of years or decades before improved patient outcomes result from discoveries in biomedical research – and NCATS wants solutions. NCATS’ (the ITM’s parent organization) spurs the development, demonstration, and dissemination of innovations across the translational science spectrum to turn discoveries from the laboratory into tangible benefits to human health. NCATS’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) hubs, like the ITM, promote advances in translational research and training at participating institutions.

This funding opportunity funds up to $275,000 to new exploratory and developmental research projects. These studies may involve considerable risk but may lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact on translational science. This grant will enable collaborative teams of investigators from at least two different CTSA institutions to address translational science questions. Collaborations that bring together approaches from different scientific disciplines are encouraged.
