CTSI announces a NEW funding line, the CTSI Start-up Project Awards. The CTSI seeks applications to support pilot preparatory work (small, short-term start-up/feasibility studies or pre-research activities) that will lead to a fully developed pilot proposal. The CTSI Start-up Project Awards will have two application cycles each year with September and December due dates. The duration of the award is 6 months or less, with projects expected to be completed in time to apply for the annual CTSI Pilot and Collaborative Clinical and Translational Research Grant in September 2017.
Cycle 1: CTSI Application Deadline: September 1, 2016, 11:59pm CDT
Cycle 2: CTSI Application Deadline: December 1, 2016, 11:59pm CDT
