Consortium of Rural States Pilot Project Award

The Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) 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 soliciting applications from all faculty members—senior as well as junior investigators—for pilot projects that will exemplify the CTSA mission of developing clinical and translational research, to promote and support 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 purpose of this 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.

The research activities at each participating site will be funded by that institution’s CTSA. Because each institution participating in this program decides how much funding will be devoted to the program, the amount of funding available will vary depending on the institutions of the investigators involved in a proposal. It is anticipated that funds up to $25,000 direct costs per project per participating institution may be available for these collaborative projects.

Collaborating Principal Investigators will submit a single combined application within the REDCap
Cloud database by filling in an online survey. Qualified applicants will be notified of the link after the Letter of Intent. The full application is due on March 14, 2022 by 5:00pm Central Time. Applications that are late or do not adhere to the instructions may be administratively denied.
