CTSI Pilot Project Awards

The UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute provides intramural awards to support the growth of interdisciplinary and investigator-initiated clinical and translational research across UF’s broad range of scientific disciplines. It is expected that all research supported by CTSI Pilot Project Awards will provide critical preliminary data to support extramural applications.

Current RFAs are posted below. UF faculty members and trainees (residents, graduate students, postdocs and fellows) are encouraged to apply.

The CTSI will host 2 Q&A sessions for investigators who have questions about eligibility, potential projects or which RFA is best suited for their proposal:

  • Monday, April 14, 2014, 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m., CTRB 2161 North & South
  • Thursday, April 17, 2014, 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., CTRB 3161 & 3162

Patient-Oriented Clinical Research

This RFA invites pilot project proposals for patient-oriented clinical research, which is defined as research in which an investigator (or colleague) directly interacts with human subjects. Proposed research can be conducted in any appropriate UF Health facility, with preference given to proposals that utilize the UF Clinical Research Center.

Application Deadline: Applications accepted on a rolling basis through March 31, 2015

Non Patient-Oriented Clinical/Translational Research

This RFA invites pilot project proposals for clinical and translational research in which an investigator (or colleague) does not directly interact with human subjects.

 Application Deadline: June 9, 2014
