The objective of the Indiana CTSI CTR pilot grant program is to foster and encourage collaboration across the Indiana CTSI partner institutions (IU, Purdue, and Notre Dame) and to initiate or continue translational research projects that have very strong and immediate potential to develop into larger, externally funded research programs, or generate novel intellectual property (IP).

Proposed projects should have participation by two or more principal investigators representing at least two of the sponsoring affiliates for this program. Sponsoring affiliates include Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM), IUPUI (non-IUSM), Indiana University-Bloomington, Purdue University-West Lafayette, and University of Notre Dame.

Recent Notre Dame awardees include Ryan Roeder from the College of Engineering and Richard Taylor from the College of Science.

All applications are due by March 9, 2015. For more information, please see Find Funding Opportunities.
