Pilot Projects

SCTR Institute

SCTR will facilitate new and innovative, interdisciplinary, high-impact translational research with emphasis on diseases demonstrating significant prevalence in South Carolina. SCTR supports applications across the translational spectrum - from basic science to population health - including patient-centered and community-engaged applications as well as applications from Early Career Investigators to shorten the time to research independence.

SCTR Funding Opportunities

South Carolina Clinical & Translational Research Institute Request for Applications for Discovery Grants

Overview

SCTR’s Pilot Project Program aims to facilitate new and innovative, high-impact translational research. The primary objectives of pilot funding are to support new and innovative, scientifically meritorious projects to collect critical preliminary data for submission of extramural grant applications and to publish research findings. We place a premium on interdisciplinary team science and new collaborations. The grant application requires an interdisciplinary team collaboration with at least one Co-Investigator/Collaborator from a different discipline.

Applications that may have emanated as a result of SCTR Scientific Retreats, patient-centered and community-engaged applications, and those focused on implementation and dissemination science are strongly encouraged.
