Extramural Funding Opportunities

UT Southwestern Medical Center – Center for Translational Medicine

The UT Southwestern Center for Translational Medicine (CTM) is pleased to make available Service Package Grants for various resources from its Translational Pilot Program and throughout the UT Southwestern campus. This program is funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), CTSA grant number UL1TR001105. For information on the Service Package grants refer to the Request for Proposal.

The goal of the Translational Pilot Program is to promote and support the development and testing of new research ideas and novel translational ideas of young investigators. The Program will encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and assess the feasibility of new approaches to translational research that will lead to extramural funding.

Trainees and junior faculty at UT Southwestern and investigators at the UNT Health Science Center will have access to funds as they take their first steps in the design and execution of clinical and translational studies.
