COVID-19 Research voucher award
THE CTSI-CN ANNOUNCES A CALL FOR VOUCHER APPLICATIONS SPECIFIC FOR COVID-19 RESEARCH
Awards of up to $2K each are available for projects that propose innovative, high-impact studies related to any area of research directly relevant to COVID-19.
This call for applications is to specifically assist investigators in developing resources and/or preliminary data to facilitate hypothesis-driven research that will allow them to participate in upcoming funding initiatives. Research may be from one individual investigator or may utilize any combination of academic labs, clinical partners, industry or foundations. All faculty are eligible.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to utilize CTSI-CN resources for research support such as:
- Informatics: Support for leverage of National Center for Data to Health (CD2H) resources (cd2h.org)
- Biostatistics, Epidemiology & Research Design (BERD): Assistance with study design and analysis
- Community Engagement or Special Populations: Strategies for recruitment from specific populations
- Collaboration and Multidisciplinary Team Science: Assistance with team creation and support
- Regulatory Knowledge & Support
- Innovations in Clinical Trials or Enhancing Clinical Trial Recruitment
Projects MUST be shovel-ready. If needed, IRB (for human subjects research) or IACUC (for research involving animals) approval MUST be granted by the time of start of funding. Vouchers will not be awarded unless required approvals have been granted.
Funds will be rapidly deployed, and should be used within 2 months of receipt. Awardees must strategize accordingly, as no extensions are allowed.
Voucher funds may NOT be used for consultants, faculty salaries, student stipends, travel, publication fees, or computer hardware. Applications are limited to 2 pages (Ariel, 11 point font). Applications should include: 1) title 2) abbreviated budget, 3) timeline and 4) brief description of the project in NIH format (intro, significance, innovation, aim(s), research plan).

Team science awards
Translational Team Science Awards (TTSAs)
Applications for 2020-21 Translational Team Science Awards are due April 23, 2020.
Translational Team Science Awards (TTSAs) aim to promote creative, multidisciplinary team-based research focused on complex or challenging biomedical research questions. TTSA research teams must be comprised of 3 or more independent disciplines or types of expertise. Teams may be formed from any combination of academic labs, clinical partners, industry or foundations. Innovative, high-impact studies of all types (T1-T4) are eligible and faculty at all levels may apply. The total budget for an entire team may not exceed $25,000 in total costs. The project period is 12 months long with no extensions. The current RFA is available HERE (pdf).
Population Health Team Science Awards (PHTSAs)
Applications for 2020-21 Population Health Science Awards are due April 23, 2020.
Awards of up to $25K each are available for projects that propose innovative, high-impact multidisciplinary studies in community-based population health research. The aim of the PHTSA is to form partnerships between two or more faculty from different disciplines and at least one community partner to embark on projects that utilize community based participatory research methods to focus on health disparities in a marginalized population. The research question should be such that no individual within the team could complete the project without the additional expertise of all the other members of the team. The current RFA is available HERE(pdf).

So you've submitted a successful LOI...
Depending on your study, you may have to:
- Consult the IRB
- Write up a research and data plan
- Formulate a budget
- Create a study timeline
- Develop a team structure
- And fill out essential documentation to get NCATS Approval
There’s a lot to do, but we’ve designed our NCATS services to walk you through the entire process. We strongly recommend that all our awardees (i.e researchers, administrators, and research staff) attend our live Information Sessions or use our resources below to better understand the process, best practices and, ultimately, quicken their approval.NCATS SUPPORT INFORMATION SESSION
