PLANNING GRANTS FOR INSTITUTIONAL CLINICAL AND TRANSLATIONAL SCIENCE AWARDS
Public and State controlled institutions of higher education Private institutions of higher education Others (see text field entitled "Additional Information on Eligibility" for clarification)
Additional Information on Eligibility
Domestic institutions, including universities, academic health centers, or other research organizations conducting clinical and translational research are eligible. Institutions and their affiliates (if any) may submit, or be part of, only a single application in response to this RFA. Multiple applications from different divisions, faculties, centers, schools, etc. of the same university or medical school will be returned without further consideration by the NIH. Foreign institutions and foreign components of applications are not allowed. Applications from ineligible institutions will be returned.
Purpose: This RFA invites applications to support planning activities to design Institutional Clinical and Translational Science Award programs (CTSAs). The goal of the Institutional CTSA program (which is described in RFA-RM-06-002) is to create an academic home (as a Center, Department, Institute or other) environment that will develop the discipline of clinical and translational science, increase the efficiency and speed of clinical research, and train the next generation of clinical and translational scientists. The purpose of this RFA is to provide resources to allow institutions to develop a plan for the content, governance, administration and evaluation of a CTSA, and to manage the necessary organizational and cultural changes needed to implement the program. Planning activities are intended to lay the foundation and prepare institutions for submitting a subsequent CTSA application.
