Frontiers Clinical and Translational Research Pilot Study

The Dr. Lauren Aaronson Frontiers Clinical and Translational Research Pilot Study provides intramural awards to support the growth of interdisciplinary, investigator-initiated clinical and translational research across a broad range of scientific disciplines. It is expected that all research supported by Frontiers pilot project awards will result in one or more publications in a peer-reviewed journal and will provide critical preliminary data to support extramural applications.

Letters of Intent are now being accepted for the new Frontiers Clinical and Translational Research Pilot Study [PDF] program. A maximum of $50,000 each is available for up to three qualified applicants.
