CTSI Core Pilot Funding- Submission due MARCH 29, 2023

Dear Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility Users,

The CTSI Pilot Funding for Research Use of Core Facilities RFA has been issued as follows:

Pilot Funding for Research Use of Core Facilities   https://indianactsi.org/researchers/services-tools/translational-research-development/open-funding-opportunities/#CPSpring202303


The Indiana CTSI Pilot Funding program is intended to promote the use of technologies and expertise afforded by the Indiana CTSI Core Facilities available at all partner institutions. Successful proposals will demonstrate outstanding scientific merit that can be linked to generating extramural funding or novel intellectual property (IP). Success of the program will be viewed, in part, by the fostering of new funded grants or providing significant contributions to grant renewals. Therefore, proposals will be judged with equal measure on scientific merit and the likelihood of generating new IP or extramural grant support.

Funding is for a maximum requested amount of $10,000; projects are typically two years in duration.

Funding is for utilization of designated Indiana CTSI core facilities only. Information describing each core is available at https://indianactsi.org/servicecores

As a designated CTSI facility, the GBCF has provided support for many successful core pilot grant applications. If work in our facility can help to support your proposal, please contact us to discuss your ideas and obtain a letter of support.
