Pilot Grant Program

The CCTS Pilot Grant program started in 2006 and is designed to provide funding for trainees, new investigators, and other researchers that will increase the competitiveness of extramural proposals and increase the number of investigators motivated to conduct clinical and translational research. The goals of the CCTS Pilot Grant Program are: 

  • To foster outstanding new clinical and translational research at UIC by supporting the development of preliminary data that can be used to launch new NIH or other externally-funded research proposals;
  • To encourage interdisciplinary teams of investigators to develop collaborations or new research avenues;
  • To promote interactions between basic and clinical scientists; and
  • To support research collaborations with community partners and organizations.
