Each year, OCTRI awards pilot project funding to exceptional clinical and translational research projects. The goal of the Pilot Awards is to foster exciting science and innovation, providing support for preliminary data generation and stimulating the development of translational research.
Awardees are evaluated throughout their research project based on their reporting of progress and outcomes. This includes the tracking of publications, new grant funding and commercialization outcomes derived from pilot funding. Most awardees also report qualitatively on project impact and list other forms of results dissemination. Investigator feedback and project outcome data are used to improve program management and guide decisions about future program iterations and initiatives.
