UMN investigators receive CTSI funding for clinical pilot studies
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.
