CTSI Pilot Program Awards

The Miami Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) offers funding opportunities to support scientifically meritorious pilot projects, that will advance translational, innovative and interdisciplinary research, and/or promote research oriented towards community and health disparities. These awards are intended to support

  • New/early stage investigators generating preliminary data for a peer-reviewed health-related federal grant (e.g., NIH, NSF, DoD) submission, or as part of a funded mentored research career development award, or
  • Senior investigators focusing on new programmatic approaches.

In alignment with the mission of the Miami CTSI to culturalize health sciences, at least one award has been given to a scientifically meritorious project related to health disparities and racial/ethnic minority health, or addressing challenges in health areas that disproportionately affect racial/ethnic minorities.

All full-time faculty from UM, Jackson and the Miami VA are eligible to apply for the next submission cyle. Only new applications and first resubmissions to any UM internal award mechanism are allowed. Eligibility criteria must be met as of date of submission.
