Research Funding

Cancer Research, Biomedical Informatics, and Community Engagement Pilot Grant Program

Application Deadline:  January 31, 2018

The great Plains IDeA-CTR Network is issuing a request for application in 3 specialty areas:  Cancer Research, Biomedical Informatics, and Community Engagement.  Please see the area specific RFA’s on the GP IDeA-CTR website for specific information on each of these funding opportunities.

1) Cancer Research:  Up to $100,000 to be spent in 24 months, but must have a strong explanation as to why this project would benefit from two years instead of one year.  The goal of the pilot program is to provide support to the most promising and novel clinical-translational research (CTR) projects and help investigators obtain preliminary data necessary for successful investigator initiated extramural grants. Download the RFA.

2) Biomedical Informatics: A total of $35,000 will be awarded.  Individual awards will range from $2,500 – $20,000. Proposals can fall into one of two categories: Big Data and Data Demonstration.  The purpose of this funding program is to support preliminary studies demonstrating the use of large datasets in Clinical and Translational Research. Download the RFA.

3)  Community Engagement:  The goal of this funding program is to achieve community impact and advance science through partnerships between community organizations and Clinical and Translational Research investigators.  Proposals that are responsive to this call will include community partners as active collaborators across the span of idea generation, proposal development, study implementation, analysis and interpretation of the results, and development of future directions for both research and community impact.  Download the RFA.
