Mar. 27, 2014

The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute seeks applicants to a funding program that provides access to advanced technologies and expertise at IU, Purdue and Notre Dame.

Indiana CTSI

The Indiana CTSI Core Pilot Grant Program aims to support basic science projects with high potential to generating new intellectual property or extramural grant support. Applicants may request access to one of more than 40 Indiana CTSI-designed cores.

Indiana CTSI-designed cores scientific resources that have officially passed a review process from the Indiana CTSI demonstrating quality oversight, users that span departments and schools, and established policies for prioritization, publication, confidentiality, cost recovery and payment, conflict resolution and user satisfaction.

The maximum request amount per application is $10,000. Projects typically are one to two years in duration. 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. Visiting faculty are not eligible.

Applications are due 4 p.m. Thursday, May 1. Complete guidelines and application forms are available for download from the Indiana CTSI grants portal. Applicants must log in using their institutional username and password. Application instructions are under “Pilot Funding for Research Use of Core Facilities -- 2014.05.”

This grant opportunity is offered twice a year. The names and projects of the most recently completed grant cycle (fall 2013) recipients are online.
