Apply Now for the Translational Research and Translational Science “Dual-Focus” Research Ensembles

The Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI) will advance the field of translational science by funding two Translational Research AND Translational Science “Dual-Focus” Research Ensembles, $50,000 each. The products of each funded Ensemble should (A) deliver solutions for an important unmet patient medical need and (B) identify and remove obstacles and roadblocks that slow the performance and progress of the translational research. Letter of Intent deadline is December 11th, 2023.

Translational research, as we are familiar with, is defined as the endeavor to traverse steps of the translational process for a particular target or disease. Whereas translational science is defined as the field of investigation focused on understanding the scientific and operational principles underlying each step of the translational process. The discovery of the scientific, mechanistic, and operational principles of the intervention development and dissemination process, provides the scientific foundation for improving translational efficiency and accelerating interventions that improve health.

This is a unique opportunity in which physicians and advanced practice providers are eligible but also non-traditional investigators or “translational research accelerators” could apply such as experts in clinical trial protocol development, patient recruitment and retention, budget development, grant management, clinical research coordination, project management, human subject research regulations and processes (IRB), advertising and communications, legal and risk management, intellectual property, etc.

All investigators and translational research accelerators at CTSI partner institutions are eligible to participate in this funding opportunity. Partner institutions include Medical College of Wisconsin, University of WisconsinMilwaukee, Marquette University, Milwaukee School of Engineering, Children’s Wisconsin, Versiti Blood Center, Froedtert Hospital, and Zablocki Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
