Clinical and Translational Research Funding Opportunities and  Upcoming Webinar


UPDATE: The video and slides [PDF] for this webinar are now available.

I’m pleased to announce two funding opportunity notices that support clinical and translational research (CTR) in Institutional Development Award (IDeA) states: the IDeA Clinical & Translational Research Network (CTR-N) award (PAR-23-241), and the IDeA Clinical & Translational Research Development (CTR-D) award (PAR-23-257). 

These programs support clinical and translational research at IDeA-eligible institutions through programs that develop research infrastructure and human resources, equip investigators and institutions to develop competitive clinical research programs, and strengthen collaborative research that addresses health conditions prevalent in IDeA states. A reissue of PAR-20-175, the CTR-N award continues support for statewide or multistate regional networks in IDeA states that have been conducting significant levels of clinical and translational research. The new CTR-D award supports clinical and translational research, workforce development, and infrastructure enhancement at health research organizations with limited clinical and translational research capacity, to help them build a foundation and enable recipients to conduct research on diseases and health challenges faced by the populations they serve.  

Application due date: November 9, 2023
Earliest start date: July 2024
