The Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC) is now accepting research proposals to be considered for the Junior Investigator Preliminary/Feasibility Grant Program (JIPGP). The application receipt deadline is February 21, 2014.

The primary goal of the Clinical Translational Research Center (CTRC) Junior Investigator Preliminary/Feasibility Grant Program (JIPGP) is to encourage junior investigators to develop clinical research projects that will ultimately lead to extramural NIH funding. The awards are designed to allow junior faculty members, clinical fellows and M.D., Ph.D. or D.M.D post-doctoral trainees with appropriate mentors to obtain funds for pilot projects that are investigator-initiated, human-based, CTRC studies that will enable an applicant to obtain preliminary data for an NIH K or R grant submission.

It is anticipated that the award will lead to a competitive extramural grant application and to a career in Clinical Translational Research Center-focused clinical investigation.

The grants will be available at each institution effective July 1, 2014.
