The Block Institute for Clinical and Translational Research at Einstein and Montefiore
Announces the availability of new CATALYTIC SEED GRANTS
We invite applications from faculty members seeking seed funding to provide data for the development of extramural grant applications. Awards of up to $5,000 will be provided to investigators who will acquire new data to generate proposals for additional funding.
Funds must be used for projects that will use ICTR Cores and Resources. Applications must be planned in consultation with the director(s) of the core or resource, who will help develop and approve the requested budget. Funds may not be used to purchase equipment or for salary support. Projects supported under this program must be clinical or translational in design or implementation. Priority for funding will be given to the current ICTR focus areas:
· Pediatric determinants of adult health
· Experimental therapeutics
· Patient-centered outcomes research utilizing Montefiore Health System data
