Funding Opportunities

Pilot studies are key sources of innovation at the University of Massachusetts Center for Clinical and Translational Science (UMCCTS). Over the past few years, we have developed a pilot portfolio that leverages CTSA funding with institutional and industry partnership to catalyze innovation and collaboration across the translational spectrum.

The primary aim of the UMCCTS' pilot grant programs is to support innovative projects most likely to yield a new product for approach that addresses a significant health issue.
