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.

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.

DEADLINE: Safadi Program of Excellence in Clinical and Translational Neuroscience Application

Full-time faculty in any track at UChicago are invited to apply for Safadi Pilot Grants for up to $30,000 for innovative translational neuroscience collaborations or to help support fellowship training. Serving as a bridge between disciplines engaged in the care of neurological diseases, including neurology and neurosurgery, the Safadi Program will further our understanding of the underlying biology of the nervous system and translate those novel findings to improve patient care. In addition, the Safadi Program will catalyze partnerships with groups across the University, enabling cross-disciplinary thinking that will allow us to tackle the most complex problems in the field.

DEADLINE: Letters of Intent for Mental Health Research Funding
Dec 22 all-day

ITM partner Cures Within Reach’s CureAccelerator is now accepting letters of intent to secure up to $250,000 in funding for projects focused on creating new repurposed treatments, diagnostic tools, and technologies for adult, adolescent, and child mental health conditions.

Repurposing can often make a quick, affordable, and effective impact on patients, but these kinds of research proposals often lack traditional investment incentives. Our international philanthropists are interested in the speed, high success rate, and efficiency of repurposing research. Projects submitted to this RFP may be immediately funded by one or more current CureAccelerator funders, and will also be used to encourage a large group of international funders of mental health research to focus their attention on repurposing opportunities at their February meeting in Europe.

Preference will be given to repurposing research using readily available treatments and diagnostics. Clinical trials are preferred, but final preclinical research that can quickly lead to a clinical trial will be strongly considered.
