SPIRiT, the Sharing Partnership for Innovative Research in Translation, is pleased to announce a new funding program for clinical and translational research that supports pilot research projects representing collaborations between investigators from at least two of the SPIRiT sites.

Harness the strengths, resources, and talents from fellow SPIRiT consortium members to accelerate your research!

The SPIRiT Consortium members include:

  • Johns Hopkins University
  • University of Chicago
  • University of Pennsylvania
  • University of Pittsburgh
  • Washington University in St. Louis
  • Yale University

– all members of the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program. 

The investigator(s) from each of the participating sites must have a significant, defined role in the research project.  Although the participating investigators may have collaborated in the past, the research project proposed must be new and not part of an ongoing project.  In other words, the proposed research must represent a new collaboration between investigators from at least two (2) SPIRiT sites OR a new project conducted by existing collaborators from at least two (2) SPIRiT sites.

Proposed projects may address any aspect of clinical and translational science.

Deadline: 5 p.m. May 15, 2017.
