Translational Methods Pilot Grant

Woman writing on grease board

The TM-Pilot Program supports the development of novel methods and innovative technologies for clinical and translational medicine to address translational science roadblocks. This includes the development of new assays, methods, software, technologies and animal models which are not currently available to the CU Anschutz campus and CCTSI affiliated institutions. 

Applications with two co-PIs, one for technology development and another for a scientific application, are especially encouraged to ensure future application and dissemination of newly developed technologies.

The TM-Pilot Request for Funding (RFA) is issued in August, applications due in November and awards are selected in February. The active funding period is May through April. Exact dates are listed in the Key Dates section of this page.
