A series of Zoom calls will promote connections between six CTSA Institutions in advance of the annual collaborative pilot funding RFA. Join us to listen, share your research focus, and make connections with other investigators.
The Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) programs of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center (UNM HSC), University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC), University of Kentucky, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), University of Iowa, and the University of Utah Health are seeking to make inter-institutional connections between faculty members—senior as well as junior investigators —to develop collaborative pilot projects.
We seek projects that will exemplify the CTSA mission of developing clinical and translational research to promote the “bench to bedside to community and practice and back” goal of the National Institutes of Health National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS).
The collaboration meetings will focus on the four areas of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) strategic plan and its commitment to increasing representation in research:
Climate Change and Environmental Health
Health Equity for Underrepresented Populations
- For example, pediatric populations, older adults, people with disabilities, people with rare disorders, underrepresented racial/ethnic and/or sexual and gender minorities, rural populations, or populations with low socio-economic status. Click here for more details.
- Rural Health
- Maternal Health
Register here for one or multiple meetings. You can indicate if you'd to present your data or simply attend the call.

FY 2024 CTSA Inter‐Institutional Pilot Project RFA Eligibility and Project Requirements
The purpose of the RFA is to promote inter‐institutional collaboration across the CTSA consortium by funding innovative, translational research projects that involve three or more of these six CTSA institutions.
- Principal Investigators for these awards must be members of a participating institution’s faculty (junior or senior investigators - all title series including regular, research, clinical, and special).
- Successful projects will exemplify the CTSA’s mission of developing clinical, translational research and science.
- Awardees will be required to submit a progress report approximately six months after receipt of funding and final progress report at the end of the project.
- Projects must be approved at each participating CTSA in order to qualify for funding.
- At least three of the participating CTSAs must be collaborating on the same application.
- The collaborating PIs must complete one application with separate budgets, one budget for each participating institution.
- Purely non-human animal research does not qualify for funding under this program.
