ITHS is offering Translational Research Partnership Awards to jump start collaborations between academic researchers and community organizations in new projects that investigate a community-based health problem, disseminate evidence-based health innovations into practice, target health promotion or prevention, or examine ways to enhance or implement sustainable health programs in community settings. We especially encourage applications for projects that test interventions or innovations in community clinical settings.
This pilot award will provide up to $50,000 in total costs for 1 year. No-cost extensions will not be allowed. ITHS does not expect that this award 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.
