Indiana CTSI offers pilot funds to access core facilities

Oct. 3, 2013

The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute offers a funding program to access core facilities. 

The program is intended to promote the use of technologies and expertise afforded by the Indiana CTSI Core Facilities available at all partner institutions. Information describing each eligible core is available on the Indiana CTSI website.

Applications to this program are expected to have a maximum requested amount of $10,000; projects typically are one to two years in duration. Successful proposals will demonstrate outstanding scientific merit that can be linked to generating extramural funding or novel intellectual property. Proposals will be judged with equal measure on scientific merit and the likelihood of generating new IP or extramural grant support.

Eligible applicants include faculty members at IU, Purdue and Notre Dame. At the IU School of Medicine, all full-time faculty, regardless of tenure status, having a primary appointment as full or part-time assistant professor or assistant scientist and above, are eligible to apply. This eligibility includes those faculty appointed as part-time assistant professor or above, if they are geographically full-time. Faculty in visiting ranks are not eligible for funding.

Information on the grant program and access to the application form can be found online. Applicants are asked to log in using their institutional username and password. Application instructions are under “Pilot Funding for Research Use of Core Facilities -- 2013.10.”

Applications are due by 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14.

The Indiana CTSI offers this opportunity biannually. The recipients of the 2013 spring core pilot grants are available online.
