SC CTSI Announces Spring 2018 Pilot Grant Awardees
The Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute (SC CTSI) funded 10 USC and CHLA researchers for the Spring 2018 award cycle.
The Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute (SC CTSI) funded 10 USC and CHLA researchers for the Spring 2018 award cycle. The SC CTSI awards over $400K annually in clinical and community research or in improving research methods and processes. These awards are intended to support preliminary research that will lead to larger extramurally-funded human mechanistic studies, clinical trials, community trials, health outcomes research, or implementation research. They are also intended to support the development and testing of new approaches and/or tools that increase the speed, efficiency, safety and/or quality of clinical, community, health outcomes and/or implementation research.
“For the Spring 2018 award cycle, we received 70 applications,” said Sarah Hamm-Alvarez, PhD, director of the SC CTSI Research Development core. “Our funding opportunities really do support a wide range of research needs, career stages, and disciplines, so if faculty missed the Spring 2018 award cycle we encourage them to apply in Spring 2019,” Dr. Hamm-Alvarez added.
