Institutional Clinical and Translational Science Award
NIH invites applications for institutional clinical and translational science awards (CTSAs).
This program announcement is an NIH Roadmap Initiative. The NIH Roadmap is an innovative approach to accelerate fundamental discovery and translate that knowledge into effective prevention strategies and new treatments. All NIH institutes and centers participate in Roadmap Initiatives.
Clinical and translational science is critical to the success of the NIH mission. The CTSA initiative assists institutions in creating integrated academic homes for clinical and translational science that have the resources to train multi- and inter-disciplinary investigators and research teams via access to innovative research tools and information technologies that apply new knowledge and techniques to patient care. CTSAs will attract basic, translational, and clinical investigators; community clinicians; clinical practices; networks; professional societies; and industry to develop new professional interactions, programs, and research projects.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Anthony Hayward, Division of Clinical Research Resources, NCRR; telephone: 301-435-0790; email: email@example.com. For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-RM-10-001.html.
Institutional Comparative Effectiveness Research Mentored Career Development Award
NINDS requests applications for Institutional Comparative Effectiveness Research Mentored Career Development Awards.
This announcement is an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, or ARRA, initiative and is made together with 13 other NIH components. ARRA is a unique effort to jumpstart the U.S. economy.
Comparative effectiveness research is the conduct and synthesis of research comparing the benefits and harms of different interventions and strategies to prevent, diagnose, treat, and monitor health conditions in “real world” settings. The purpose of this research is to improve health outcomes by developing and disseminating evidence-based information to patients, clinicians, and other decision-makers—responding to their expressed needs—about which interventions are most effective for which patients under specific circumstances. This announcement supports the expansion of the Nation’s workforce of researchers with expertise and experience in comparative effectiveness research. It permits research-intensive institutions to develop an interdisciplinary environment catering to the needs of diverse populations of scholars.
Application Due Date: March 25, 2010
