CTSI awards $150,000 in pilot funding for two research projects

CTSI has awarded $150,000 in pilot funding for two projects—$75,000 each—toward the planning and successful implementation of clinical intervention pilot studies. 

These projects have successfully completed Stage 1 of CTSI’s Clinical and Translational Research Services (CTRS) Pilot Funding Program and will begin Stage 2 of the program this fall, which includes obtaining preliminary data needed to inform a future, larger clinical trial. Projects are expected to be completed within 18 months and will be milestone-based. 

Congratulations to the awardees!
