CTSI's Pediatric Device Development Award Program, which supports the development of pediatric medica devices to improve pediatric outcomes and quality of life, is expanding to now accepting applications continuously throughout the year.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota and Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota are collaborating on a study that explores a new approach for connecting food insecure families with food and nutrition resources, thanks to funding from CTSI, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, and the University’s Department of Pediatrics.
CTSI has awarded $200,000 to five health research collaborative partnerships between University of Minnesota investigators and individuals unaffiliated with the University.
Two research teams have been awarded up to $50,000 each to pursue health research projects that have the potential to lead to a start-up company or license agreement.
If successful, the University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic grantees will be eligible to apply for up to $400,000 in additional funding.
In 2012, Department of Radiology Professor Jafar Golzarian, MD, received pilot funding from CTSI’s Office of Discovery and Translation (ODAT) to further develop a drug-delivery device for cancer patients that he’d invented with his team at the University of Minnesota. Shortly after, he spun the technology out to EmboMedics -- where he serves as co-founder and chief medical officer -- to continue advancing and commercializing the technology.
CTSI, the Pediatric Device Innovation Consortium (PDIC), and its academic partner, Philadelphia Pediatric Medical Device Consortium (PPDC), hosted more than 70 industry and faculty researchers at an inaugural Pediatric Device Breakthrough Collaborative event earlier this month.
“Initial funding from CTSI led to a nearly three-million-dollar NIH grant to advance our research. CTSI’s support enabled us to demonstrate the effectiveness of the treatment we’re investigating, and that further studies on the topic could be feasible, particularly in terms of attracting enough research participants.”

CTSI’s Translational Grant Program will award funding to University of Minnesota research projects that aim to translate basic science discoveries into patient benefit, with the overarching goal of positively impacting human health. Up to four faculty research projects will receive as much as $50,000 each.
CTSI has released a report that evaluates the Community Health Collaborative Grant award program, which aims to support research projects that lead to health improvements, while sustaining long-term partnerships between University of Minnesota researchers and community representatives.
Last month CTSI hosted an event for AHC faculty to learn more about CTSI, its vision moving forward and how it can help advance the careers and research of University investigators.
