The TM-Pilot Program (formerly known as Novel Method Development) supports the development of novel methods and innovative technologies for clinical and translational research. This includes the development of new assays, methods or technologies 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 October, applications due in December, 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.
Multiple TM-Pilot awards of up to $20,000 each will be awarded in these categories:
