(From the October 2015 issue of Research Now)
Via the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), select Shared Resources (Drug and Device Development Services, Research Information Solutions and Innovation, and the Biopathology Center Core) at Nationwide Children’s Hospital are now offering vouchers for select projects. CTSA-supported resources are utilized to conduct study specific research. The CTSA grant is administrated through the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) at The Ohio State University. The OSU CCTS facilitates and supports translation of scientific discoveries into innovations that improve health.
To achieve this mission and advance translational research, the CCTS is now awarding vouchers to provide funding support to investigators to enable preliminary work and generate data for new or ongoing projects with the ultimate goal of furthering clinical and translational research (up to $4,000). These voucher awards are intended to be used on projects that are currently ready for services immediately (“just in time” data) and can be finished using services by December 31, 2015. Nationwide Children’s is the pediatric partner within the OSU Hub.
