Pilot Programs

CTSI Community-Initiated Pilot Project Award

Community-initiated translational research pilot projects that focus oncommunity-identified health-related needs and involve collaborations between community organizations and researchers. It is expected that the research supported by each of these pilot awards will result in one or more publications and/or presentations, and will collect data that will be used to apply for funding from NIH or other funders to expand and continue the projects. The project should include a collaboration between the following:

  1. Leader(s) of a community organization located in Utah
  2. Researcher(s) affiliated with a Utah CTSI organization – University of Utah, Utah Department of Health, Veterans Affairs Salt Lake City Health Care System, Intermountain Healthcare, or HealthInsight

CTSI Pilot Project Award

Pilot projects will exemplify the CTSI mission of developing clinical and translational research, to promote and support the “bench to bedside to community and practice and back” goal of the NIH. The purpose of this research announcement is to support pilot projects that utilize the CTSI infrastructure to produce preliminary data for competitive NIH grant proposals in clinical and translational (T1, T2, T3, and T4) research. Projects must be of high methodological quality and must demonstrate feasible and generalizable solutions to translational research problems.

The next award cycle will be announced August 12th, 2020.
