2020 Awardees

The CTSI Traditional Pilot Awards are intended to support innovative, multidisciplinary and multi-institutional studies that advance Clinical and Translational Research. This approach has been successful and has catalyzed the formation of many multi and transdisciplinary research teams of scientists.

Support for the 2020 Traditional Pilot Awards comes from Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Research and Education Program (AHW REP) and is supported by grant UL1TR001436 from the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program of the National Center for Research Resources and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.

Congratulations to the 2020 traditional pilot awardees.
