The UR CTSI provides a variety of pilot funding opportunities for innovative translational and clinical research that moves new discoveries along the translational continuum to humans and the community. Our grants range in size and focus – from $10,000 “pipeline-to-pilot” awards that encourage and support collaborative activities to $250,000 “super-pilot” awards that provide two years of funding to accelerate innovative scientific discovery in the life sciences and public health. Grant proposals that include multidisciplinary research teams and stand to have a substantial impact on population health will receive priority.
Two-year “super-pilot” awards of up to $125,000 per year for innovative research programs.
One-year awards of up to $25,000 for trainees or up to $50,000 for faculty.
Seed funding of $10,000 - $15,000 to foster future UR CTSI pilot or external funding applications.
