Bridges to Translation RFA VIII pilot project funding available

Penn State Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) invites applications for pilot projects designed to build connections across the translational spectrum of the health and biomedical sciences.

The long-range goal of the CTSI is to develop, implement and make available to the community new methods to promote health and to predict, prevent and effectively treat human disease. The translation of biomedical and health discoveries to application is a long and complex process with high costs and substantial failure rates. The CTSI seeks to fund pilot projects aimed at building linkages and overcoming roadblocks at any stage in the translational process.

Special consideration will be given to projects that focus on development or applications addressing Social and Environmental Determinants of Health, specifically as these relate to rural and other vulnerable populations who experience health disparities.

CTSI will provide up to $240,000 to support interdisciplinary, multi-investigator projects. Awards will be capped at a $50,000 budget. Projects must be able to be completed within twelve months of receiving full regulatory and institutional approvals and funds.

Internal submission deadline: Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2023 at 5 p.m. 

* Letter of intent is not required for consideration
