Deadline Oct. 20: 2023 CTSI Spring Pilot Award Applications

Deadline: October 20, 2023, by 5:00 p. m.

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.

This CTSI RFA will support pilot projects across the full spectrum of clinical and translational research, such as preclinical research; clinical research conducted with human subjects or on material of human origin (e.g., tissues, specimens, cognitive phenomena); epidemiological and behavioral studies; outcomes research and health services research; and the development of new technologies and methodologies.

It is expected that all research supported by the CTSI Pilot Award mechanism will result in one or more publications in a peer-reviewed journal and provide critical preliminary data to support extramural applications.

To request a pilot consultation, an application to be triaged for responsiveness to the RFA, or for any questions please email the pilot listserv –
