OCTRI funding makes a difference: Catalyst Award Q&A session, March 11

The Awards Program is a key part of the Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute (OCTRI). OCTRI offers a variety of award mechanisms all aimed at stimulating new external funding at OHSU. Since 2007, 108 OCTRI awards have been launched, and of those projects 42 have resulted in at least one new external research award, with many receiving more than one award. A total of 81 external grants have been credited to OCTRI pilot support, bringing in $52.8 M in new OHSU funding. The Catalyst Award program is a partnership between OCTRI and the SOM Research Roadmap.

Don’t miss out!
OCTRI will be holding an Informational Q&A session for their largest funding opportunity, the Catalyst Award, Tuesday, March 11, 2014. This Q&A session will be held at 10 a.m., in Mac Hall room 2201, and is strongly recommended for those thinking about applying for the 2014 deadline.

Please RSVP to Colleen Lay.

The Catalyst award is designed to support the development of funding proposals in three general areas: large, transdisciplinary grants (e.g. Center, PPG or multi-investigator R01s), grants that support the development of research cohorts that can themselves be platforms for multiple research projects, and grants to initiate programs designed around first in human studies. Projects can request up to $100,000 of direct costs and an additional $25,000 for OCTRI services.
