2008 Pilot Grant Program Update
February 3, 2009
The UIC Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) announced this week that it has awarded funding to seven projects in its 2008 Pilot Grant Program. The program, supported by the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, and the Health Science Colleges, focuses on clinical and translational research – research that involves human subjects, facilitates human subject investigations, establishes infrastructure related to human subject investigation, or concerns disease mechanisms with clear, near term implications for therapeutics or prevention. Seventy-five proposals were received from a variety of UIC departments and colleges, representing the Chicago, Peoria and Rockford campuses. The funded projects include investigators from 17 different departments and 4 colleges.
