DoD Spinal Cord Injury Translational Research Award: The Translational Research Award (TRA) mechanism was first offered as the Translational Research Partnership Award (TRPA) in FY09. Thirty-one TRPA applications were received, and 9 were recommended for funding. NEW for FY12: The award mechanism has been modified to support individual investigators, and is no longer limited to multi-institutional, multidisciplinary partnerships among clinicians and basic scientists. This award supports translational research that will accelerate the movement of promising ideas in spinal cord injury research into clinical applications. Observations that drive a research idea may be derived from a laboratory discovery, population-based studies, or a clinician's first-hand knowledge of patients and anecdotal data. While the ultimate goal of translational research is to move an observation forward into clinical application, PIs should not view translational research as a one-way continuum from bench to bedside. The research plan must involve a reciprocal flow of ideas and information between basic and clinical science. Developmental pathways for translational research that may be useful for designing translational research studies for support under this mechanism may be found at ( Applications must include preliminary data relevant to SCI and the proposed project. Research involving human subjects and human anatomical substances is permitted; however, clinical trials are not allowed under this funding opportunity. A clinical trial is defined as a prospective accrual of human subjects where an intervention (e.g., device, drug, biologic, surgical procedure, rehabilitative modality, behavioral intervention, or other) is tested with a human subject for a measurable outcome with respect to exploratory information, safety, effectiveness, and/or efficacy. This outcome represents a direct effect on the human subject of that intervention or interaction. For more information on clinical trials and clinical research, a Human Subject Resource Document is provided on the CDMRP eReceipt System at Principal Investigators (PIs) wishing to apply for funding for a clinical trial should utilize the FY12 SCIRP Clinical Trial Award mechanism (Funding Opportunity Number: W81XWH-12-SCIRP-CTA).
