The Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) is accepting letters of intent–due October 3–to apply for pilot funding for projects that enhance translational research at OHSU. This funding mechanism is offered in close collaboration with the School of Medicine Research Roadmap, but is open to all OHSU faculty.
OCTRI will award up to 5 awardees up to $100,000 over one year to facilitate novel, collaborative, multidisciplinary studies that will lead to further research and funding in translational research. This funding is specifically intended to enable the development of compelling new grant applications that will sustain the proposed research activity.
Applications that are responsive to any one of the following three areas will be accepted:
- Development of Large, Interdisciplinary Grants
- Research Cohort Development
- T1 Translational Research/First in Human Studies
While this opportunity is open to all OHSU faculty, PIs must fit OHSU eligibility requirements.
