UF-FSU CTSA Hub Pilot Project Awards


About the awards

These awards are designed to highlight collaborative research projects between researchers at UF and FSU.


PIlot projects that are funded by the UF-FSU CTSA hub awards should are designed to impact practice-based healthcare, hospital care, or the translational research process. They may also consist of transdisciplinary teams that conduct original research related to the design, dissemination, or evaluation of translational communication messages used to make research more accessible, understandable, and actionable.

Current Pilot Award Opportunities

UF-FSU CTSA Pilot Project Award

Deadline for Letter of Intent is Monday, March 1, 2021 by 5 p.m.

Deadline for Applications is Monday, April 12, 2021 by 5 p.m.

This RFA is designed to support collaborative projects between Florida State University (FSU) and the University of Florida (UF) that can be accomplished in eighteen months or less and will concentrate on mental health, health disparities, maternal child, and cardiovascular disorders and or/lay critical groundwork for subsequent research while extramural funding opportunities emerge. Applications must include one or more researchers from each institution.

This RFA invites applications across the full spectrum of clinical and translational research, including 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 research supported by this mechanism will result in one or more publications in a peer-reviewed journal and provide critical preliminary data to support extramural applications.
