Clinical and Translational Research Pilot Program
As UTMB’s home for translational research, the ITS is working to improve the health of our community through innovation, team science, the development, application, and evaluation of precision medicine approaches, data sciences & discovery, and developing technologies.
These awards provide funding and expertise to research at any point along the translational spectrum (pre-clinical research, clinical research, clinical implementation, and public health; for more information, see ncats.nih.gov/translation/spectrum), with the goal of catalyzing a larger, extramurally funded study. Projects can include animal studies, preclinical trials, testing of diagnostics or therapeutics, developing new quantitative methodologies that can be applied to biomedical research, applying existing methods in novel ways to address translational research problems, and community-engaged research or assessment.
Currently, we are soliciting applications for collaborative Pilot Projects between UTMB and Texas Southern University, and for Multi-institutional Cross-disciplinary Translational Teams for Technology and Therapeutics (MCT4).
