Delaware ACCEL Clinical & Translational Research Program
The Delaware ACCEL Program offers the Mentored Research Development Awards (MRDAs) to support clinical faculty engaged in research. MRDAs serve to offset clinical time for investigators to develop and prepare grant submissions for ACCEL Pilot Awards or for external research funding. MUSC investigators meeting the NIH definition for “New Investigator” are eligible to apply as MUSC’s SCTR Institute serves as the official CTSA partner to the Delaware ACCEL Clinical & Translational Research program.
Application Deadline: September 30, 2014
The SCTR KL2 is designed to foster the discipline of clinical and translational research and increase clinical and translational research capacity through the training of junior faculty. The program provides salary support up to $100,000.00 plus fringe at required 75% effort for 2 years and support services to develop an extramural grant application (preferably R-Series) to fund research at the conclusion of the KL2 funding.
Applications Due: September 15, 2015
The purpose of the Pilot Program is to provide short-term start-up funds to promising postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty (less than 5 years from post-doctoral training/terminal degree) at MUSC to collect initial data for an RO3, R21, or R01 submission. The project must focus on a neuroscience-related topic and explore either sex/gender differences or disorders/treatments as they uniquely relate to women. The project can be either clinical or basic science, but consistent with the NIH Roadmap Initiative and the vision of MUSC’s South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research Institute (SCTR). Projects involving multidisciplinary teams and/or translational research efforts are especially encouraged.
Application Due: November 2, 2015
The ACCEL Community Engaged (ACE) Research Awards purpose is to train scholars to conduct research that engages the community in the research experience. This initial research experience of the ACE award should lead to larger, externally-funded research and publications and support individuals to become independent Community-Engaged researchers.

Neuroscience Institute Pilot Program
The Neuroscience Institute Pilot Program has two main objectives: to foster new collaborative research in the neurosciences that is highly relevant to development of treatments for neural disorders, and provide pilot data that will lead to sustained funding from an external agency (e.g., NIH). Each application must have 2 faculty co-PIs, and preference will be given to collaborations between clinical and basic scientists. The applications should follow the guidelines of the NIH R21 application and include all sections described in the NIH SF424 guidelines. Contact Susan McLintock (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information.
Applications Due: May 20, 2015 5:00 pm
The program’s goal is to facilitate new, meaningful clinical and translational research; promote scientific interactions between basic and clinician-scientists and between clinician-scientists and the community; and accelerate the process from discovery to improved patient care.
