The Yale Center for Clinical Investigation (YCCI) is pleased to announce the 2014-2015 round of pilot grants. YCCI’s pilot program is a funding venue for conducting small-scale research projects to generate data that potentially could lead to further research and funding opportunities. YCCI will accept proposals in the following categories:
• Center for Biomedical and Informational Technology (CBIT): Viable prototypes, animal or pilot clinical data, and a compelling business case enhance the successful commercialization of biomedical technologies. This award provides Stage 1 and Stage 2 awards to promising projects that can benefit from the expertise offered by CBIT, a collaboration between the Schools of Medicine, Management; Engineering and Applied Science; industry; and YCCI.
• Yale Center for Molecular Discovery (YCMD): For investigators interested in screening compounds but lacking the resources to carry out this research, YCCI is partnering with YCMD to offer this award for proposals of that demonstrate potential.
• Informatics: Epic is a powerful new tool in the clinical research arsenal that has yet to be harnessed. This award will involve collaboration with the Epic team and YCCI analysts for projects that utilize the EMR to conduct research utilizing the data it contains.
The Pilot awards RFA, which features specific application and deadline requirements for each pilot category, is issued periodically and is sent to all Yale faculty. For the 2014-2015 RFA, click here.
