Translational Methods (TM) Pilot Awards are federally funded through the CTSA grant from NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), but do not require official pre-award review (routing) through the CU Denver Office of Grants and Contracts prior to submission.
However, affiliate home organizations may require applicants to complete an internal review process prior to submission. Please check with your institutional grants or sponsored projects office to ascertain if your institution has pre-submission requirements for applications to programs such as this. Any awarded projects that have not met these requirements prior to submission will not be activated until all such affiliate institutional requirements are met.
If a Translational Methods Pilot Award is made to an investigator at an affiliated institution, F&A costs may be included. Please contact the CCTSI for specific discussions on how this may impact your overall budget prior to development and submission of your project.
NCATS has instituted a new policy requiring the review and approval of all CCTSI pilot grants involving human subjects research prior to CCTSI NIH funds being utilized.
