2013 CTSI Annual Pilot Awards to Improve the Conduct of Research
To facilitate the development, conduct or analysis of clinical & translational research
CTSI invites the UCSF Campus Community and CTSI Affiliate Organizations to submit your best ideas for improving the design, conduct, or analysis of translational research. Pilot awards are expected to range from in-kind support from CTSI programs to $50K each; total funding values to be disbursed in this cycle have not yet been determined. We will use UCSF Open Proposals for submissions, allowing for collaboration and improvement of proposals prior to a final review deadline.
