To advance the cellular and molecular understanding of individualized and population health, undiagnosed diseases, adverse events, and more, the partnership between CTSI and the Mellowes Center for Genomic Sciences and Precision Medicine (MC), is seeking proposals for small-scale research projects that utilize any combination of the genomic, transcriptomic, or epigenomic technologies and bioinformatics platforms available in the MC. Responsive proposals will describe projects that 1) improve our understanding of disease initiation, progression, or therapeutic resistance, 2) show promise to clinically improve disease prevention, early detection, diagnosis or treatment, or 3) develop novel data that empower future studies translating ‘Omics data into the practice.
Thus, responsive projects will be setup to rapidly identify discoveries for better understanding health for our communities through robust, multidisciplinary, and Team Science approaches, that leverage ‘Omics technologies.
This mechanism will fund up to 4 awards across the following categories in 2023:
Biostatistical, Epidemiology, Research, Design (BERD) mini-grants for biostatistical support are available to applicants for pre- or post-award support. Please see information at Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Mini-grants.
Link to application will be sent to PI upon completion of the 30-minute MC consultation.
Use standard 11-point font, single space, and half-inch margins throughout the document. Consecutively number all pages.
Grants will be reviewed by a panel assembled by CTSI and Mellowes Center Leadership, and recommendation for funding made three months following the RFA deadline. Proposals showing promise to support submission of a high-impact paper or a larger proposal for extramural funding will be prioritized.
Awardees will be required to respond to routine post-award surveys and to present their data at a research seminar (to be scheduled by MC).
* Funding Proposals: applications for this award are not required to be submitted in eBridge. Instead of starting a funding proposal in eBridge, please submit the online REDCap grant application to CTSI by 5:00 p.m. on June 5, 2023.
We provide the below examples, as practical examples for how investigators can combine expertise from our two organizations, to pursue novel research studies at MCW.
As an NIH supported program, the CTSI is required to collect benchmark, annual progress, and long-term outcomes reports of all Pilot awarded projects. Timely progress and reporting of the funded research project is a requirement of the award.
These CTSI Pilot – Mellowes Center Awards are funded by the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). All applications and awarded projects must follow respective processes including but not limited to reporting requirements.
Please acknowledge the National Institutes of Health (NIH) CTSA award when publishing or presenting any outcomes resulting from your study by including the CTSI Funding Acknowledgement.
