Sharing Partnership for Innovative Research in Translation (SPIRiT) Award

The Sharing Partnership for Innovative Research in Translation (SPIRiT) is pleased to announce a new funding program that supports pilot research projects representing collaborations between investigators from at least two of the SPIRiT sites.

The consortium members include:

All consortium members are also members of the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program.

To be eligible for the award, investigator(s) from each of the participating sites must have a significant, defined role in the research project.  Although the participating investigators may have collaborated in the past, the research project proposed must be novel and not part of an ongoing project.  In other words, the proposed research must represent a new collaboration between investigators from at least two (2) SPIRiT sites OR be a new project conducted by existing collaborators from at least two (2) SPIRiT sites.  Proposed projects may address any aspect of clinical and translational science.

Applications are due Monday, May 15 by 5:00 p.m. EDT
