GHUCCTS supports consultative resources, facilities and funding opportunities related to clinical and translational research.
GHUCCTS is a multi-institutional consortium of medical research institutions forged from a desire to promote clinical research and translational science. The members of the GHUCCTS consortium are: Georgetown University (GU), Howard University (HU), MedStar Health Research Institute (MHRI), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), and the Washington Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center (VAMC).
Through multiple partnerships and collaborations among the member institutions, GHUCCTS will transform clinical research and translational science in order to bring new scientific advances to health care.
To achieve this mission, GHUCCTS announces Request For Applications (RFAs) to support innovative and collaborative research, and help investigators find opportunities to address their scientific questions and projects. Each RFA below has a unique description and outlines the type of programs that are eligible, the expectations and how to submit an application. Once approved, GHUCCTS will provide access to a wealth of advisors, collaborators and resources to enable applicants to innovate and to transform their own environment to develop and advance clinical and translational science.
Innovative Research Methods: Prevention and Management of Symptoms in Chronic Illness (R01)
This funding opportunity seeks to update the randomized control trial (RCT) design using novel research methods that are practical, innovative, and hold promise for producing more effective outcomes. Novel clinical research designs, applied to symptom management trials, may identify those treatment strategies that best alter the course of symptom burden in chronic illness by addressing the issues of varied treatment responses across patients, subject retention, and adherence to treatment regimens.
Funding Opportunity: Community Engagement & Research (CER)
Community-Academic Partnerships Mini Grant Awards
This Request for Applications intends to support development of sustainable partnerships between academic researchers and community stakeholders. Proposals are sought to promote
participation, discovery, application, and dissemination of science
that improves the public's health and/or reduces health
Pilot and Collaborative Studies Funding Opportunity
The Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) is pleased to announce the availability of support for pilot and collaborative studies. The mission of GHUCCTS and the national Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA) programs includes promotion of interdisciplinary research that will translate basic findings into clinical applications and clinical research findings into community use in order to improve human health.
R03 Opportunity: National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)
NIDDK Small Grants for Clinical Scientists to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research
Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) Translational Technologies Resources (TTR) Component Request for Applications
The Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS), Translational Technologies Resources component (TTR) is pleased to announce the availability of funding to support the use of existing TTR resources to generate preliminary data for grant submission, development of novel technologies or approaches for basic or clinical research.
