Specialized Innovation Programs (SIP)

Limited Competition: High Impact Specialized Innovation Programs (SIP) in Clinical and Translational Science for UM1 CTSA Hub Awards (RC2 Clinical Trials Optional)

Key Dates

Release Date: February 14, 2024

Submission Deadline: March 6, 2024

Anticipated Notification: March 20, 2024

SCTR leadership is seeking Specialized Innovation Program (SIP) concept proposals. Eligible MUSC faculty may contribute an idea responsive to PAR-24-054. Concepts will be reviewed by SCTR leadership who will then choose a project for an upcoming SIP submission deadline. Because SCTR’s renewal period is seven years and two SIP awards are permitted per hub, we anticipate future concept calls to add additional SIPs.

We encourage potential applicants to review these principles and the NIH funding opportunity announcement to guide the development of a responsive concept.
