UI Health Cancer Center »


Our Cancer Center philosophy and execution functions under five cores: Education, Community, Clinical Science and Services, Basic Sciences and Shared Resources. These cores underlie our priorities. Our clinicians and researchers, of whom make up our highly distinguished faculty, not only train our future healthcare providers, but are breaking new ground in the process with continual research on cancer. The Office of Community Engaged Research and Implementation Science (OCERIS) of the UI Health Cancer Center also facilitates this value of education through community screenings and prevention opportunities, by embedding themselves within the groups of people who most need our care. Our labs and hospital facilities are stocked with state-of-the-art technology, allowing our clinicians to treat their patients and our researchers to seek out cancer’s demons, using the basics of science and modern medicine. Finally, our Shared Resources are plentiful, providing our Cancer Center with the many tools needed to conduct innovative clinical trials that are in their earliest stages, and develop novel pharmaceuticals that are changing the way cancer is treated. Mile Square offers our patients an opportunity for primary health care and cancer screening as needed, under the umbrella of the Federally Qualified Health Care Systems. Our mission of serving the underserved is carried throughout, with our partnership to the UI Health Mile Square Health Centers as a way to maintain that connection. Within this context, we are building a model to provide our constituents with access to the best healthcare possible. Ultimately, our goal is to develop a bench to community model of care that translates the science of cancer into the welcoming arms of a community that cares. The combination of our laboratory research, clinical trials and patient care enables our Cancer Center teams to actively translate knowledge gained, into an improved quality of life for persons and families impacted by cancer.

UIC Center for Clinical and Translational Science
Pilot Grant Program

AY 2019-2020 Call for Applications

 

Overview

The goals of the CCTS Pilot Grant Program are:

  • to foster outstanding new clinical and translational research at UIC by supporting the development of preliminary data that can be used to launch new NIH or other externally-funded research proposals;
  • to encourage interdisciplinary teams of investigators that spans across Colleges and campus to develop collaborations or new research avenues;
  • to promote interactions between basic and clinical scientists; and
  • to support research collaborations with community partners and organizations.

This program focuses on clinical and translational research, and as such, all applications must involve human subjects, facilitate human subject investigations, establish infrastructure related to human subject investigation, or concern disease mechanisms with clear, near term implications for therapeutics or prevention. Pilot funding aims to support several aspects of the collaboration that will lead to a successful, extramurally funded research programs.

Aspects include but are not limited to:

  • proof of principle studies for new methodologies;
  • feasibility studies for patient recruitment;
  • measurement validation studies;
  • pilot intervention studies to inform sample size and power estimation;
  • establishment of collaborative community partnerships;
  • development of new technologies to address a clinical research problem;
  • improvements in biomedical informatics architecture and/or delivery of services,
  • new methods for structuring or analyzing data sets; and
  • stimulating child clinical research.

Note: Pilot funds cannot be used for clinical trials.

Priority Areas

Although applications are welcome in the broad domains of clinical translational research, we are especially interested in applications covering the following priority areas for Fall 2019 funding:

  • Pain management/opioid use/substance use
  • Health disparities/health equity
  • Innovative Implementation Science: Implementation methods that promote the uptake of research findings into routine healthcare in clinical or policy contexts
  • Projects linking patient data to Chicago Health Atlas data
  • Projects that tie into Healthy Chicago 2.0 goals
  • Studies on methods to improve the clinical translational research process
  • Projects grounded in bidirectional community-based participation
  • Child health research
  • Studies that address health equity

Application Process

Pilot grants can be up to 2 years in duration ($30,000 each year, with second year funding contingent upon progress made during Year 1) and focus specifically on activities needed to prepare competitive NIH grant proposals.

Grant Application Process:
