Posted August 3, 2023 by Dan Moser

Letters of intent are due Sept. 5 for three pilot research funding opportunities open to investigators from all University of Nebraska campuses and other Nebraska institutions from the Great Plains IDeA-CTR Network.  

The network will provide Team Research Pilot Grants of up to $100,000 in direct costs for existing clinical and translational research teams or projects that address public health research. Single investigators are not eligible for this funding; there must be evidence of a team-based approach inviting two or more principal investigators from different disciplines.  

The Great Plains IDeA-CTR Network also is seeking letters of intent for its Tech Transfer Pilot Grant, which will offer up to $50,000 in direct costs for a one-year project focused on translation of intellectual property into clinical or community applications. 

The network also will award Team Development Pilot Grants of up to $50,000 in direct costs over one year to foster formation of new teams with cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional integration of basic, preclinical, clinical, clinical implementation and public health research. 

Letters of intent for all three programs are due by 5 p.m. Sept. 5. Those invited to submit full applications will be notified by Sept. 15, with solicited applications due Oct. 27.   

Institutions in the Great Plains IDeA-CTR that are eligible for funding include: Boys Town National Research Hospital, Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, Creighton University, Omaha VA Medical Center, University of Nebraska at Kearney, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska Medical Center and University of Nebraska at Omaha.
