The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is pleased to announce three pilot funding programs.
Community Collaborative Grants support research that solves problems in translating clinical and health-related scientific knowledge into meaningful changes in practice, with the goals of improved health outcomes and/or reduced costs.
Shared University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic (SUMMA) Awards establish long-term collaborations between U of M and Mayo Clinic investigators, and support pilot studies that examine issues important to community health.
Translational Research Grants support and facilitate the highest quality T1, early phase translational research.
CTSI’s pilot funding programs support the continuum of translational research — from investigation through discovery and into community practice — linking the most basic research to practical improvements in human health.
