The ITHS offers two types of Translational Partnership Awards, one for New Interdisciplinary Academic Partnerships (NIAP) and one for Academic Community Partnerships (ACP). These awards provide up to $50,000 in total costs for 1 year.
The ITHS also offers Early-Stage Product Development (ESPD) Awards to help translate clinically relevant research discoveries toward development of commercial products that improve human health. These awards provide up to $100,000 in total costs for 1 year.
ITHS does not expect that these awards will support a complete project from initial concept to publication of results. The amount of funding and the term of the award are intended primarily to support pilot work that will generate initial data or results demonstrating the feasibility and merits of a larger project that could be continued subsequently under other mechanisms of support. The links below provide details regarding NIAP, ACP and ESPD awards and the application process.
