Clinical and Translational Research Grant Program

Clinical and Translational Research Grants fund clinical and translational research in focused areas. Clinical Research covers all studies of diseases and trials of treatments that take place in human subjects. Translational Research describes the steps between a fundamental discovery and its application in clinical medicine, including the identification and development of biomarkers, development of therapeutics, genotyping, proteomic, metabolomic or imaging approaches of diseases for phenotyping diseases that lead to more accurate prognostic methodologies or guide targeted interventional procedures. Clinical and Translational Research Grants are for $120,000 ($60,000 per year) for a two-year project or $60,000 total for a one-year pilot project.
