Research Support

The Admin KCA is responsible for overseeing the review and funding procedures for all CTR-IN research awards. It has established standard procedures to ensure unbiased and equitable distribution of research support. The process for each is described below:

Pilot Grant Program

Goal: To facilitate the development of new translational or clinical research with good potential to increase independent NIH or equivalent funding for clinical and translational research in the Mountain West region of the IDeA Program.

Eligibility: Investigators eligible to apply for independent NIH funding holding a faculty appointment at one of the Mountain West Research Consortium (MWRC) institutions, except for the University of New Mexico and the University of Hawaii which have equivalent programs of their own.

Content: Projects must be focused on Clinical or Translational Research. For the purposes of the CTR-IN this does not include pre-clinical or basic science research.

Call: In the spring of each project year (the first project year was an exception due to delayed funding of the CTR-IN).

Allowable expenses: Salary support for the Principal Investigator, research personnel, and supplies. Budgets must include expenses to travel to, and to present at, the CTR-IN Annual Scientific Meeting. Other travel expenses are permitted if necessary for conducting field work as part of the pilot project, or for domestic travel if justified for establishing a mentorship relationship, accessing experts or other resources, or presentation of peer-reviewed findings from the project at up to one national meeting per year. Budgets may not support office supplies, phone costs, or other costs considered to be indirect expenses under NIH guidelines, unless justified as directly related to research data collection.

Application format: A standard defined format with elements including project plan, budget, letters of support, biosketches, and assurance of IRB compliance where required.

Funding preference will be given to:
1) Promising New Investigators, developing clinical or translational research programs;
2) Funded basic science researchers with plans to move into new translational projects;
3) Projects focused on health issues relevant to the Mountain West region, including those faced by rural and vulnerable populations.

Policy considerations: The CTR-IN program strives for equity in support across all 11 eligible universities, provided that:
1) The applications propose high quality science as determined by external reviewers.
2) The applications have good potential to move the applicant toward NIH or equivalent funding as an independent investigator.
3) If the investigator has a previous record of independent NIH or equivalent funding, the proposed research must represent a transition in career direction between bench, translational or clinical.

ALL FUNDS MUST BE EXPENDED BY JUNE 30th OF EACH PROJECT YEAR (July 1 – June 30)

Visiting Scholar Program

Goal: To facilitate the development of new translational or clinical researchers who have good potential to achieve independent NIH or equivalent funding in clinical or translational research by providing an opportunity to gain skills and experience, and build or extend a collaborative relationship, that can help the recipient become a successful independent investigator.

Eligibility: Early Career or New Investigators per NIH definitions who are eligible to apply for independent NIH funding and hold a faculty appointment at one of the Mountain West Research Consortium (MWRC) institutions, except for the University of New Mexico and the University of Hawaii which have equivalent programs of their own.

Call: Open while funds are available in each Program Year, contact the CREMCaD Director for current status

Allowable uses: Travel expenses, housing, and research supplies for the recipient to spend time in the laboratory of a successful mentor.

Application format: a standard defined format with elements including project plan, budget, letters of support, biosketches, and assurance of IRB compliance where required.

Policy considerations: The CTR-IN program strives for equity in support across all 13 partner universities, provided that:
1) The applications propose high quality science as determined by reviewers.
2) The plan proposed has good potential to move the applicant toward NIH or equivalent funding as an independent investigator in clinical or translational research.
3) The budget is reasonable.
4) The plan is feasible within the available time before the end of the project year.

Note:

ALL FUNDS MUST BE EXPENDED BY JUNE 30th OF EACH PROJECT YEAR (July 1 – June 30)
