NEW TL1 Postdoctoral Program in Clinical Research and Medical Informatics Application

Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis for the NEW TL1 Postdoctoral Program in Clinical Research and Medical Informatics. The program, funded by the National Research Service Award (NRSA), comprises participating degree programs at the University of Chicago and Rush University. The program will prepare postdoctoral trainees with clinical (MD, DNP, PharmD, DMD/DDS, etc.) or research degrees (PhD) for careers as independent and collaborative translational researchers with a focus on clinical research and medical informatics.

Trainees will select one of two training pathways based on their research interests and training needs: the Clinical Research Pathway or the Medical Informatics Pathway. Depending on the selected pathway, trainees will enroll in either a master’s program in clinical research or a master’s program in biomedical informatics, with cross training provided in both focus areas.

Chicago Biomedical Consortium Catalyst Awards

The Chicago Biomedical Consortium’s (CBC) Catalyst Award program offers funding of up to $250,000 for one- or two-year new inter-institutional collaborative research projects. Projects should address important areas of basic biological/biomedical or translational research that are risky, innovative, and potentially transformative. Catalysts are not intended to support incremental progress, obvious next steps, or NIH-ready projects. Applicants submitting projects with translational potential will be required to submit a statement regarding the unmet clinical need and the potential impact on human health. The CBC is a partnership for research and education collaborations between UChicago, Northwestern University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago.

E2E Design Lab
Mar 7 – Mar 8 all-day

The Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program’s Trial Innovation Network (TIN) offers support for efficacy to effectiveness (E2E) trials, or trials where a successful efficacy study transitions seamlessly into an effectiveness trial. Studies like these are important because they address safety gaps, streamline the trial process, and offer an opportunity to better understand how a treatment will work in real-world clinical settings.

Learn how to boost your trial design at the two-day E2E Design Lab workshop March 7-8 in Boston, MA, offered by CTSA’s Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) NEWDIGS program in collaboration with the JHU-Tufts Trial Innovation Center. The interactive event will dive into the process of planning a Phase 2 or Phase 3 E2E multi-center trial to help you improve your research and study design.

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.
