Available pilot project funding for catalyzing translational research

octriThe Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) is currently accepting applications for the Catalyst Award, a pilot project program designed to enhance translational research at OHSU. The Catalyst Award is offered in collaboration with the School of Medicine’s Research Roadmap and the Office of the Senior Vice President for Research.

This year, catalyst funds will support the efforts of investigators to develop and disseminate consequential, novel research methodology. The development of new methodologies is a critical part of clinical and translational research. Examples of responsive projects include genomics research methodology, improved methods for community outreach, or novel mechanisms to both increase the speed and decrease the cost of clinical trials.

Application deadline: Friday, Apr. 1, 2016
Award amount: Up to $75,000 over one year each (two awards available)

Eligible applicants must meet OHSU PI requirements.
