DEADLINE: ITM Pilot Awards Letter of Intent

The ITM is now accepting Letters of Intent (LOI) for its Pilot Science Development Program.  

Since 2007, the ITM has given investigators more than $5.1 million in seed funding to conduct research that has the potential to impact human health. Pilot Award researchers have gone on to launch companies, secure millions of dollars in additional funding, build national programs, and more. The new ITM Pilot Award program launched Sept. 1, 2016, and offers more money, new communications resources, and collaboration opportunities. 

The 2018 Pilot Award committee will select 10 finalists to apply for up to $60,000 to fund a one-year project that focuses on translational research aligned with the mayor and Chicago Department of Public Health’s Healthy Chicago 2.0 program. Pilot Award finalists will also receive ITM resources for study design, video production and communications support, and networking opportunities. Individuals from any ITM institution, which include the University of Chicago, Rush University, Loyola University Chicago, NorthShore University HealthSystem, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and Advocate Health Care are eligible to apply.

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.
