CTSI releases more than $650K in funding to support clinical and translational research

July 31, 2018

More than $650,000 in funding has been released to support Minnesota biomedical research projects through six Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) programs designed to help U of M faculty prepare and implement studies, help build junior investigator and trainee research careers, and address important health issues.

This significant wave of initial funding released through CTSI’s new Clinical and Translational Science Award is in addition to five CTSI programs that accept applications on an ongoing basis, including three early-translational programs, and two programs specifically for community representatives, organizations, and advocates.

CTSI is also accepting nominations through August 23, 2018 for its Mentor of the Year program, which bestows three awards annually to faculty who excel in research mentorship, including awards specifically for biostatisticians and junior faculty.

All of these opportunities can be found on the"Funding Opportunities" page on CTSI’s website, or you can connect with Melissa Hansen, CTSI’s Research Navigator, at ctsi@umn.edu or 612-625-2874.
