NIBIB Supplements to NCATS CTSA Programs for Translational Research Teams of Quantitative Researchers and Clinician-Scientists (Admin Supp)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health
The purpose of this administrative supplement is to facilitate translational research partnerships between junior researchers with quantitative backgrounds (in engineering or computational or physical sciences) and junior clinician-scientists from active CTSA institutions (PAR-15-304PAR-18-464).  The supplement will support the quantitative researcher, "the NIBIB Translational Research Scholar", contingent upon his/her collaborating with a clinician-scientist KL2 scholar, the "partnering clinician-scientist".  The partnering clinician-scientist will be supported independently of this supplement through the parent KL2 award throughout the duration of the proposed supplement. Both team members will be selected by the KL2 PD/PI. The KL2 PD/PI will assist the NIBIB Translational Research Scholar and the partnering clinician-scientist in developing a translational research project aligned with NIBIB's research mission under the guidance of their identified basic and clinical/translational science mentors.  Based on this project, the KL2 PD/PI will submit a supplement request under this FOA.
Up to two applications per institution are allowed.
