Apply for OCTRI Patient and Clinical Interactions Management Award by Oct. 1

Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute is accepting proposals for research projects with the potential for high impact. Applicants may request funding for up to $20,000 per project for Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC) services.

Specifically, PCI funds may be used for OCTRI nursing services, study coordinator services, bionutrition services, or lab services. On the OCTRI Services page, scroll down to “Participant-based Services (Including the Clinical and Translational Research Center).”

This award supports early career faculty members from OHSU and OCTRI partners for studies associated with current mentored career development awards. OCTRI partners include the University of Oregon, Portland State University, Oregon State University, Pacific Northwest National Labs and the VA Portland Healthcare System.

Projects funded by PCI awards must be associated with peer-reviewed, external funding from the NIH (K award), VA (CDA) or major national foundations.

A key requirement for this funding mechanism is that awardees receive close project management. Projects will be milestone-driven. Upon successful completion of milestones and delivery of a progress report, projects may be eligible for an additional $20,000 for a second year of award, pending availability of funds.

Funds from the PCI award must be used for CTRC services. Studies may take place at the CTRC, or in other locations while using CTRC services.

See the OCTRI funding page for more information and the RFA to apply.

Application deadline: October 1, 2018
