OCTRI Novel Research Methodology Development Awards available

The Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) is now accepting applications for Pilot Funding for Development of Novel Research Methodologies. The intent of this funding mechanism is to encourage and accelerate the creation, dissemination, and implementation of novel translational and clinical research methodologies.

The development of new methodologies is critical to the advancement of translational and clinical research. OHSU investigators have often been actively involved in creating translational research methods, and this program provides a dedicated funding mechanism to accelerate such work. The goal is to facilitate development of state-of-the-art tools for translational research and to make them rapidly available to investigators.

Two levels of novel research methodology funding are available:

1.    Development and dissemination of novel research methodologies (up to $25,000)
2.    Publication/Dissemination of novel research methodologies (up to $5,000)

Novel Research Methodology Development Awards support the development of novel clinical and translational methods and can encompass a wide range of techniques. Please see the RFA for examples of pilot projects that would be viewed as responsive.

Principal Investigators must fit OHSU eligibility requirements.
