Two University of Minnesota faculty have been awarded $50,000 each to prepare and implement clinical pilot studies. 

CTSI’s Clinical Translational Research Services (CTRS) Pilot Funding Program program will fund projects in two stages:

  • Stage I: Assemble a study team, prepare an IRB application, and secure regulatory approval. 

  • Stage II: Implement and complete the proposed prospective pilot clinical trial.
