The Clinical Research Services Pilot Funding program supports full-time University faculty by providing them with up to $5,000 toward planning for a clinical interventional pilot study. Eligible pilot study plans will be considered for $25,000-75,000 in additional funding for study implementation. It is expected that the data gathered through this funding mechanism will inform the study design of a larger clinical trial.
The Office of the Vice President for Research and the Office of the Vice President for Health Sciences serve as the sponsors of the CPD, which includes University staff and external advisors with proven drug-development experience.
The CPD provides guidance and funding, with potential matching funds from philanthropic and industry partners. Funded technologies will have demonstrated persuasive indicators of commercial success and will show potential for improving human health.
