This program provides funding in two stages to full-time University of Minnesota faculty to prepare and implement prospective clinical pilot studies for focused clinical research questions and the data collected is expected to inform subsequent larger clinical trials.
Letters of Interest are now being accepted for a CTSI pilot award program that supports community-university research projects that address important health issues identified by Minnesota communities.
A new RFA is available through the Translational Product Development Fund for projects that have the potential to be commercialized through the formation of a start-up company or execution of a license agreement with an established commercial entity; apply by Feb. 7.
When Susan Everson-Rose, PhD, MPH, had an idea that could help heart attack survivors, she turned to CTSI for support making the jump from concept to pilot study to major grant application.
There’s a new funding opportunity for University of Minnesota researchers developing diagnostics and treatments for rare diseases, thanks to the recent release of an RFA from CTSI’s Translational Grant Program. CTSI anticipates funding up to two projects, with each project receiving as much as $50,000 in direct costs for one year.
“Our CTSI-supported research project didn’t just inform public policy; it led directly to the creation of new legislation,” says Dr. Rebecca Shlafer.
Fellow U of M faculty member Dr. Katy Kozhimannil adds, “CTSI support formalized our University-community partnership, which was critical to our ability to make a nationwide impact with our work."
CTSI support enabled Assistant Professor Laura Palombi, PharmD, MPH, and a community task force to hold a CTSI-supported forum on heroin and opioid abuse that successfully rallied a northern Minnesota town.
Dr. Palombi credits CTSI as the "jump-start” that propelled everything forward, including subsequent funding to replicate best practices in other rural communities.
University of Minnesota biomedical engineers showed artificial blood vessels implanted in young lambs could grow within the new owner, potentially preventing the need for repeated surgeries in children with congenital heart defects.
CTSI awards $150,000 in pilot funding for two projects that successfully completed Stage 1 of CTSI's Clinical and Translational Research Services (CTRS) Pilot Funding Program. Projects advancing to Stage 2 will work toward the planning and successful implementation of clinical and intervention pilot studies.
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.
