Funding Opportunities

Pilot RFA's release

ICTR continually updates the pilot awards program to include new initiatives and funding opportunities, including our service laboratory vouchers and Dissemination and Implementation Research Award program. Below is the table that describes our current award programs and some with RFA release dates later this year. 2016 Pilot Awards Program incorporates the T0 to T4 research classifications introduced last year. These targeted research areas will continue to include basic discovery research, patient-based clinical research, patient-centered outcomes research, dissemination and implementation (D&I) research, community engaged research, and discovery and development of novel therapeutics.

ICTR Pilot Programs

Translational Basic & Clinical Research Pilot Awards Program Awards

We are requesting applications that address basic discovery activities (biological, social, behavioral mechanisms that underlie disease); development of biomarkers, target and lead molecules, and devices (mechanical, computational); preclinical and animal models; Proof of Concept studies; translation of discovery to patients (new diagnostic, treatment, and prevention methods, Phase 1, and 2 clinical trials). Projects funded in previous rounds:
2008 T1 Awards   │  2009 T1 Awards  │ 2010 T1 Awards  │ 2011 T1 Awards2012 T1 Awards  │ 2013 T1 Awards  │ 2014 T1 Awards2015 Awards

Clinical & Community Outcomes Research Pilot Award

This funding supports research that translates knowledge into improvements in clinical practice and community health. Funding aids research that addresses the gap between what we know and what we do in practice, as well as the development of interventions that require individual, organizational, or system behavior change.

Dissemination & Implementation Research Award Program

ICTR funds this opportunity for investigators interested in patient-centered outcomes research. These awards will be used to support a grant application to the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (www.pcori.org) or similar funding mechanism (AHRQ/PCOR) through development of strong stakeholder engagement strategy in one of five areas: (1) Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options; (2) Improving Health Care Systems; (3) Addressing Disparities, (4) Communication & Dissemination Research, (5) Accelerating Patient-Centered Outcomes Research and Methodological Research.

 

Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR)

ICTR funds this opportunity for investigators interested in patient-centered outcomes research. These awards will be used to support a grant application to the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (www.pcori.org) or similar funding mechanism (AHRQ/PCOR) through development of strong stakeholder engagement strategy in one of five areas: (1) Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options; (2) Improving Health Care Systems; (3) Addressing Disparities, (4) Communication & Dissemination Research, (5) Accelerating Patient-Centered Outcomes Research and Methodological Research.

 

Marshfield Clinic/Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation-UW Madison (MC/MCRF-UW) Collaborative Research Pilot Award

The Marshfield-UW Research Pilot Award will provide support for proposals that build upon the research interests and infrastructure support of both partners. Applications must demonstrate a collaboration between MC/MCRF and Madison and indicate a single co-PI at each institution. Examples of projects include: 1) use of population-based clinical data for therapeutic or basic targets; and 2) computational tool development or use to guide clinical trials, gather/analyze electronic health records data, or guide diagnosis.

ICTR Novel Methods Award Program

ICTR Novel Methods Awards Program focus on methods that improve the translational process by minimizing roadblocks to the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical and translational research. Contact/Liaison: Peggy Hatfield, pmhatfieatwisc [dot] edu, 608-261-1939.

 

Dissemination Supplement Award

This award program will provide support for research that addresses how to best ensure evidence-based strategies / interventions / programs are effectively delivered in clinical practice and community health programs.

Projects funded in previous rounds

ICTR Voucher Awards Program

We offer short term, low dollar awards (up to $7,500) to advance the translation of discovery into therapy. Applicants must document an urgent need for services based upon recent extramural grant review, or milestones for therapeutic development. Requests are redeemable only at one of the ICTR Affiliated Laboratories. Contact/Liaison: Peggy Hatfield, pmhatfieatwisc [dot] edu, 608-261-1939.

Projects funded in previous rounds: 2013, 2014, & 2015

Additional Requirements and Information

NIH has implemented a new Biosketch Template. This allows the researcher to emphasize their most significant contributions to science. This new section replaces the previous 15 publications/citations relevant to the current research funding application. The NEW Template is in a MS Word format and is required for all ICTR Funding Opportunities.
