CCTS Interdisciplinary Network Pilot Program: Pre-Application
The mission of the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) is to reduce disparities in diseases disproportionately represented within the Deep South as we accelerate discovery to improve human health. Through the CCTS Interdisciplinary Network Pilot Program, we seek to develop the future research workforce in a spirit that fosters collaboration, team science, and innovative discovery. The CCTS seeks proposals that address scientific questions consistent with the Center's mission at any "stage of research along the path from the biological basis of health and disease to interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public" as described in NCATS' Translational Science Spectrum ( Special Considerations: Special consideration will be given to those projects that bring together investigators across two or more partner institutions. Proposals to investigate the operational principles underlying each step of the translational process are encouraged. Priority will also be given to applications that address scientific questions of particular importance to the health of our communities, including health disparities, health challenges across the life course (premature birth, pediatrics, geriatrics, etc.), health literacy and/or numeracy, and environmental factors related to health, as well as applications that involve Community Engaged Research, population health investigation, medical device development, or innovative approaches to promote efficiency in participant recruitment to clinical studies.
