Secure Funding

The Conduits/ETI Pilot Awards
We provide one year of funding for up to three projects at $75,000 and a minimum of three projects at $25,000. Projects focus on development of new high-risk/high-gain ideas and represent collaborative research that is translational in nature. 

The Conduits/IPM Pilot Award Program
We provide one year of funding for up to two applications at up to $75,000 each. Eligible investigators are full-time faculty conducting biomarker and/or genetic marker discovery or validation pilot projects. 

The Methods Innovation Awards
We sponsor small grants to encourage innovation in the development and application of methods for clinical and translational research, with a focus on tools for: (1) clinical trials recruitment, conduct, and analysis; (2) applications of genomics to clinical research; and (3) methods for addressing critical issues in clinical research ethics

Clinical Research Centers
Small amounts to support ancillary services and subject reimbursement, as well as imaging pilot projects, are available. 

Clinical Research Fellows
These two-year fellowships provide critical additional support during a transition period for exceptional research-oriented physicians and PhD postdoctoral fellows who wish to become clinical and translational scientists. The goal of the program is to provide support for outstanding young investigators who have the greatest potential to become independent investigators. 

KL2 Program
Established and funded by Conduits, the KL2 Scholars Award program promotes and supports career development in patient-oriented, clinical, and translational research for outstanding junior faculty.
