The Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) has introduced a unique opportunity for investigators to apply for research funding. Strategic Investment Funding supports OHSU faculty members by providing small amounts of funds (up to $20,000) that can provide a critical difference for their clinical or translational research. This funding is specifically intended to provide crucial support for a project that is close to achieving independent funding. It is meant to allow the project to get “over the last hurdle” in an already well developed process but for which there are no other funds available. A very limited pool of funds is available annually, so OCTRI is looking for compelling opportunities with the potential for high impact.
