Funding sources:

Pilot Funding For Research Use of Core Facilities - 2017.04

FULL APPLICATION DEADLINE - October 9, 2017   

The Indiana CTSI Pilot Funding program is intended to promote the use of technologies and expertise afforded by the Indiana CTSI Core Facilities available at all partner institutions. Successful proposals will demonstrate outstanding scientific merit that can be linked to generating extramural funding or novel intellectual property (IP). Success of the program will be viewed, in part, by the fostering of new funded grants or providing significant contributions to grant renewals. Therefore, proposals will be judged with equal measure on scientific merit and the likelihood of generating new IP or extramural grant support.

Applications to this program are expected to have a maximum requested amount of $10,000; projects are typically two years in duration.
