NIH K12 Clinical Scholars Program

The Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career Development Program (MCRCDP) at Washington University (WU) is now seeking applications for the 2007 entering class of K12 Clinical Research Scholars (CR scholars). This program offers didactic training and hands-on clinical research training and mentorship to fellows, post-docs, and junior faculty committed to clinical research. Sponsored by the NIH K12 Roadmap Initiative, these awards provide support for clinical research and training for career development of scholars in diverse disciplines, including but not limited to nursing, pharmacy, epidemiology, public health, physical and occupational therapy, social work, biomedical engineering, psychology, anthropology, biostatistics, and all fields of medicine.


Clinical Research Training Center (CRTC)

CRTC offers many programs that would be of interest to postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty, and mid-career faculty. Postdoctoral Mentored Training Program in Clinical Investigation (MTPCI) Application deadline: March 15, 2012 for July 2012 start date KM1 Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) Career Development Award Application deadlines: June 16, 2012 and November 16, 2012 KL2 Career Development Awards Program Next application cycle: July 1 – September 15, 2012


NIH K30 Clinical Research Curriculum Award (CRCA)

For the purpose of this award, clinical research includes: patient-oriented research, epidemiologic and behavioral studies, and outcomes or health services research. The NIH defines patient-oriented research as research conducted with human subjects (or on material of human origin such as tissues, specimens, and cognitive phenomena) that requires direct interactions with human subjects. Patient-oriented research includes study of the disease, therapeutic interventions, and clinical trials. For updated information about the K30 award, please see the NIH Guide Notice of July 1, 2003 The CRCA is a trans-NIH effort that is administered by the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR). Its development is informed by the NIH Roadmap for Biomedical Research and the Clinical and Translational Science Awards Program.


NIH T32 Predoctoral Interdisciplinary Clinical Research Training Program (PICRT)

The Predoctoral Interdisciplinary Clinical Research Training Program provides career development for medical and allied healthcare students through didactic coursework, mentored training, work-in-progress research discussions and journal clubs and conferences. In September 2007, Washington University School of Medicine received a five-year, Clinical and Translational Science Award from the NIH. One aim of this award is to promote clinical research training among predoctoral allied healthcare students, create an efficient entry for interested students into a variety of clinical research careers and allow flexibility to develop novel and unique programs. To this end, Washington University is offering the PICRT Program to students in medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, biomedical engineering, social work, pharmacy, and audiology and communication sciences, who wish to pursue academic careers in clinical research.


Institute Of Clinical And Translational Sciences (ICTS) Clinical And Translational Research Funding Programs

ICTS supports several internal grant funding programs promoting research in clinical and/or translational science to:

  • Encourage interdisciplinary teams of investigators.
  • Promote interactions between clinical and basic scientists; between investigators from different schools within Washington University and our academic partners as well as different academic departments and disciplines.
  • Promote research by new investigators and junior faculty.
  • Support collaborations with community organizations.

BJHF-ICTS Funding Program The Barnes-Jewish Hospital Foundation (BJHF) and the Washington University Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) have partnered to offer a joint Clinical and Translational Research Funding Program expected to award up to $1.4M per year for new projects. This initiative combines the former ICTS Pilot & Novel Methodologies Program and the BJHF Clinical/Translational Research Grant Program. Annual call for proposals in two categories:

  • Planning Grants: Provide up to $25,000 direct costs for 1 year to facilitate the planning of a new clinical or translational research project.
  • Research Grants: Provide up to $100,000 direct costs per year for 1-2 years to support a clinical or translational research project.

Just-In-Time Core Usage Program Total awarded services may not exceed $10,000 within a 12 month period. Monthly open call to provide quick access to funding to use the ICTS Cores for research advancing medical knowledge that can improve human health. Bander Business Ethics In Medical Research Funding Program Annual call to promote innovative research that examines an ethical issue arising from the business or financial dimension of medical research.
