All high impact research relevant to health and well-being across the lifespan is eligible. Support is not limited to pediatric research.
The CTSI-CN offers pilot awards once per year in three distinct pilot programs:
- - Community Engagement Pilot Program, for translational science involving the community
- - Discovery Pilot Program, targets a broad range of disciplines and levels of inquiry ranging from basic, translational, and clinical to population-based research that covers the human life span
- - Translation-Acceleration Pilot Program, focused on barriers that involve methodological issues, institutional structures, and early clinical feasibility
Research supported through this mechanism should provide critical preliminary data to support an extramural research application within two years of the completion of this award.
