Pilots to Develop Novel Clinical and Translational Methodologies

Yale faculty may request funds to develop new technologies with the strong promise of being introduced for use with humans in the short term (less than five years).

Funds may be used to develop methods that could be applied in humans to improve the phenotyping of human subjects, or the diagnosis or treatment of human diseases (such as the use of mass spectrometry in biomarker development, novel imaging approaches or the development or refinement of devices).

Methodologies that are not technologically based are also eligible for funding. These could include new methodological approaches to problems in research ethics, biostatistics, clinical trials design, biomedical informatics, or novel approaches to implementing community-based research/outcomes studies.
