The Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) is now accepting letters of intent to apply for Biomedical Innovation Program funding. The intent of this funding mechanism is to accelerate the delivery of healthcare technologies from academia to the marketplace and thereby to improve health care. This funding mechanism is offered in close collaboration with the SOM Research Roadmap, but is open to all OHSU faculty and qualified employees.
The Biomedical Innovation Program is designed to identify and foster creative solutions for important health care problems. Critical elements of successful proposals will be a well developed idea or vision for the end product and a collaboration between clinician scientists and bioengineers; that collaboration will make possible the identification of a significant clinical problem, an innovative idea for a device or diagnostic to address the problem, bioengineering approaches for device or diagnostic development, and early clinical validation of effectiveness.
Deadline: Letters of Intent due 11/28/2013
Amount: Up to $40,000 over one year
Eligibility: Principal Investigators must fit OHSU eligibility requirements

Samples will be retrieved from the Kaiser Permanente Northwest Biobank (NWBB). Specimens currently in storage as stabilized buffy coat or DNA at -80C. Buffy coat samples will have DNA extracted before transfer to the selected investigator for use in research. The NWBB currently has over 12,500 samples on hand for this use.
Deadline: Proposal deadline 12/5/2013.
Eligibility: Principal Investigators must fit OHSU eligibility requirements
Strategic Investment Funding supports OHSU faculty members by providing a funding mechanism that can provide a critical difference for clinical/translational research. Applications for funding will be rapidly evaluated (weeks) and support will be quickly available for those selected for support.
This award is intended to provide critical 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 study process but for which there are no other funds available. A limited pool of funds is available annually, so we are looking for compelling opportunities with the potential for high impact. Funding requests that involve partnering with other sources (e.g. departmental sources) are strongly favored.
Priority will be given to those proposals that require a small amount of funding to achieve a significant result. We anticipate support will usually be to gather additional data to allow submission of an application for independent funding (e.g. an NIH R award or support for commercialization). The critical need for small amounts of additional funding should be apparent. Examples of appropriate funding requests include:
• Collection of preliminary data that are critical for the submission of near term funding applications
• The demonstration of proof of concept needed for the development of a technology or new product with biomedical impact, thus allowing licensing or the formation
of a start-up
• Providing essential momentum for a new collaborative research focus (e.g. a multidisciplinary research group needing funds to enable a research conference with well organized outcomes such as new grant preparation/submission).
These awards may be used for a broad range of research expenses, provided a clear case is made as to why the funds are essential to the project and how the investment will lead to future research support.
Applications for these awards may involve direct cash awards and/or OCTRI research infrastructure services. Examples of OCTRI services include data warehouse queries to identify potential research subjects, nursing or study coordinator support for conduct of the study, core laboratory support for sample analysis, and biostatistics support for data analysis.
Contact the research navigators for more details regarding OCTRI services that may be pertinent to your research at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503 418-9790
Two levels of Strategic Investment Funding are available:
• Funding less than $5,000 (Cash and/or OCTRI Services)
• Funding from $5,000-$20,000 (Cash and/or OCTRI Services)
These amounts refer to the total requested support (OCTRI cash awards plus OCTRI services).
This is an open funding opportunity. Applications may be submitted at any time. OCTRI will continue to accept applications until the funds available are depleted. OCTRI is committed to supporting OHSU investigators in the common effort to improve human health by enhancing clinical and translational research.
The Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) is now accepting letters of intent to apply for Community Pilot Project Funding. OCTRI’s Community & Practice Research (CPR) program seeks to work collaboratively with community organizations, health care practices and researchers to study how best to improve the health of Oregonians. We expect to fund 1 application this year in the amount of $50,000 for a period of 12 months.
Pilot funds are specifically intended to enable the development of compelling new grant applications (e.g. to NIH, PCORI, CMS, etc.) that will sustain the proposed research activity. The OCTRI funding could allow generation of preliminary data, provide support for collaboration building and program development, or other essential elements needed for the goal of obtaining additional funding.
The purpose of this funding mechanism is to encourage research projects in collaboration with the Central Oregon Health Council (COHC) to evaluate the impact and implementation of six key initiatives that have been put into place in alignment with the Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) health care transformation plan to achieve the Triple Aim—better health, better care and better value for healthcare dollars. Applications must be submitted by an OHSU investigator in partnership with the COHC. Please contact Dr. Jackilen Shannon with the Central Oregon Research Coalition for more information.
Letter of Intent Deadline: Passed (September 3, 2013) Please check back for future important dates.
Amount: Up to $50,000 over one year. Use of COHC data analyst/liaison services depends on the individual needs of the project but will be expected to be budgeted at a minimum of $10,000 (as part of the $50,000).
Eligibility: Principal Investigators must fit OHSU eligibility requirements. Applicants must work directly with an investigator from Central Oregon who is involved in the COHC stated key initiatives.

The Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) and the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) are now accepting letters of intent to apply for Pilot Project Funding for ONPRC-OCTRI Collaborative Research. The purpose of this funding mechanism is to encourage research using non-human primates (NHP) or NHP-derived materials for new collaborative projects that will lead to new external funding of research with clear translational outcomes. An explicit requirement for this pilot mechanism is the substantive involvement of co-PIs from ONPRC (core scientist) and OCTRI/OHSU (faculty-level investigators). These requirements distinguish this RFA from the annual ONPRC Pilot Research Program.
Priority will be given to new collaborations between established investigators at ONPRC and basic or clinical scientists at OHSU. We will also consider more modest projects utilizing existing NHP samples or materials, and which represent an extension of an existing study that could form the basis for a new collaborative research direction. Applications in the areas of genetics, metabolic disease, stem cell therapies, addiction, early childhood health and development, and aging research are strongly encouraged. Awardees are expected to submit a manuscript to a peer-reviewed, scientific journal and submit a grant application to one or more external agencies as part of the successful execution of the pilot project. ONPRC and OCTRI should be informed of submitted manuscripts and/or grant applications.
Deadline: Letters of intent due March 22, 2013
Amount: Two, one-year projects at a maximum of $50,000
Eligibility: Co-Principle Investigator (core scientist) and OCTRI/OHSU (faculty-level investigator)
