SOUTH CAROLINA CLINICAL & TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH 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 INSTITUTE PILOT PROJECTS
SCTR Collaborative Projects Grants
Collaborative grants such as program project grants other P-type grants and U-type grants provide an ideal mechanism for collaborative scientific projects that have a synergistic focus. Often, pilot data from the project leaders demonstrating successful collaborations and scientifically meritorious projects is needed for these grant applications to be successful. In addition, a need for cores that provide additional synergistic support, not available through the R01 mechanism, must be demonstrated.
SCTR is committed to enhancing collaborative Team Science and translational research. Collaborative project grants are ideal mechanisms for fostering these goals. The institution has a large number of investigators who could work together on a series of interrelated projects that may lead to a collaborative project grant. However, investigators may need a catalyst and financial support to position themselves for these applications. Thus, the goal of this RFA is to foster collaborative research, via support of three interrelated research projects, to generate the necessary preliminary data that would put a group of cross-disciplinary investigators in a position to successfully apply for a collaborative grant within a year of completion of the pilot project funding period.
Pre-Application Submission (REQUIRED): by 5PM (EST) on Friday, July 6, 2018
Pre-Applicants will be notified with the decisions whether to submit full applications.

Carolinas Collaborative Translational Research Pilot Program Request for Applications on use of EHR for clinical research
North and South Carolina are home to 4 CTSA hubs - Duke University, the Medical University of South Carolina, the UNC Chapel Hill/RTI partnership, and Wake Forest University. - who have partnered with Health Sciences South Carolina (HSSC) to create the Carolinas Collaborative, a data resource that harmonizes the electronic health record data across the institutions to expedite clinical research and quality improvement. In order to promote inter-institutional collaborations and increase utilization of the resources, the 4 CTSAs are soliciting proposals involving at least 2 of the Carolina CTSAs that utilize the data available from the Carolinas Collaborative to generate new knowledge and improve the quality of care delivered to patients in the Carolinas. The work should collect preliminary data to lead to a competitive proposal to an external funding agency (NIH, AHRQ, PCORI, etc.) within 1 year from funding.
Informational webinar: June 29th, 2018 at 10-11am EST. Register here. (The slides will be made available for anyone who can not join this optional event)
Application Submission Deadline: August 15, 2018 at 5pm EST
Selection of Awardees: By September 30, 2018
Funding Period: Budget period is 12 months beginning no more than 60 days after notification of the award and ending no later than November 30, 2019.

MUSC CENTER FOR GLOBAL HEALTH
MUSC Center for Global Health
The MUSC Center for Global Health (CGH) is pleased to announce that it will fund several pilot project grants for up to $20,000 for a 12-month period. Through this RFA, the CGH seeks to provide pilot funds to stimulate research in low and middle-income countries, with the larger goal of enabling investigators to leverage preliminary findings and data to become the basis of a competitive extramural research grant application. The prime purpose of these awards is to strengthen the applicant’s ability to secure subsequent research funding. Projects that have the best potential for future growth and external funding will be prioritized for funding. Applications that include matching funds will be given preference.
Application due Date: June 18, 2018 by Noon EST
