MU is a partner in the Wash U Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (ICTS), so all MU faculty are eligible to apply for these funds. In the past, we have had 7 awards through this program. If interested, please visit the ICTS website and notice that LOIs are required (and due on 7/26/17). This RFA is focused on clinical and translational research projects in the broad sense. If animal studies are proposed, they will be required to demonstrate a strong linkage to human disease.
The Washington University Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) announces the 11th annual Clinical and Translational Research Funding Program (CTRFP). Annually, the CTRFP receives over 100 applications and awards approximately $1M for 20 investigator-initiated projects.
The 2017 ICTS Clinical and Translational Research Funding Program documents are now
