Current Grant Opportunities
The CCTS Pilot program supports career development through utilization of pilot funding to reinforce the development of new research teams, technologies, and methodologies for clinical and translational research.
There are currently no open opportunities for the Pilot program. Please check back soon.
Funding support for investigators.
The OSU CCTS facilitates and supports translation of scientific discoveries into innovations that improve health. To achieve this mission and advance translational research, the CCTS awards vouchers to provide funding support to investigators who require assistance from an Ohio State University or a Nationwide Children’s Hospital core service to enable preliminary work and generate data for new or ongoing projects and/or to secure fee-based core services for expert consultation services (such as biostatistics) with the ultimate goal of furthering clinical and translational research.
These awards are intended to be used on projects that are ready for services immediately (“just in time” data), must be translational in nature, and must be used to generate preliminary data for a grant submission or data for a publication. The CCTS will award OSU and NCH investigators vouchers worth up to $3,000 (see eligibility 4 - 6) in core services (eligible cores listed below) per investigator and per project.
Deadline: Monday, September 17, 2018 at 5:00pm
The OSU Drug Development Institute (DDI) in collaboration with the College of Medicine and the Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences are working together to sponsor a pilot project to generate pre-clinical data with a novel, selective Estrogen receptor Beta (ERb or ESR2) agonist WT-IV-012. This effort seeks to identify between 5 to 15 worthwhile proposals to perform pre-clinical work with this compound focused on generating data that will be useful for eventual decisions relative to clinical application of this agent. Each proposal may request up to $50,000.
Request for Applications for Projects in the ISP Grant AY 2018-19
The Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH)/The Ohio State University (OSU) is now seeking applications for a new funding opportunity, sponsored by the CCTS’s Integrating Special Populations (ISP) Program. The ISP Pilot Program will offer investigators at NCH/OSU up to $40,000 in funding to support research initiatives that involve groups that are frequently underrepresented in clinical and translational research.
