CCaTS offers several programs that provide intramural funding for clinical research at Mayo Clinic.
- Career Transition Awards in Clinical/Translational Research — This program provides support to junior faculty in their efforts to become independent clinical/translational investigators. CCaTS will provide up to $50,000 for one grant year that may be used at the discretion of the awardee for salary support and research expenses consistent with NIH guidelines. Up to two awards per year will be made depending on the merit of the applications received and the available funds.
- CCaTS-CBD Pilot Awards for Team Science — CCaTS and the Center for Biomedical Discovery (CBD) support Pilot Awards to help develop clinical-basic partnerships in translational projects that have the potential to impact the clinical practice and enhance team science at Mayo Clinic. CCaTS-CBD awards up to six grants of $75,000 (direct costs) for one year.
- CCaTS Research Resources Core Innovation Fund — This program supports innovative development of novel clinical and translational methods and can encompass a wide range of techniques. Proposed methods should have wide applicability and be ready for implementation in the core or facility by the end of the award period. This award aims to facilitate development of state-of-the-art tools and innovative modifications of existing methods for translational research; and make them rapidly available to clinical investigators.
- CCaTS Early Stage Investigator Award — This program aims to fund studies, particularly those led by junior faculty, that have a high likelihood of generating preliminary data for successful NIH grant applications in the future. Awardees have access to all CCaTS facilities, including the Clinical Research Unit (CRU) and core laboratories.
- Community Health: Assessment and Improvement Measures Program (CHAMP) — This program seeks to improve and promote the health of the community by disseminating and implementing new tools and programs of proven efficacy, addressing barriers to implementation of effective therapies, or developing new and sustainable community health interventions.
- High-Impact Pilot and Feasibility Award — A one-year award that provides funding up to $30,000 for study-related expenses. This new award mechanism, created in 2010, is meant to produce preliminary data that will support research areas novel either to Mayo Clinic or to the investigative team, and that have the potential for high impact on patient care in a timely manner.
- Novel Methodology Development Award — A one-year award that provides intramural funding up to $50,000. This award focuses on accelerating the development of novel methodologies with direct application to clinical and translational research.
- Safety and Screening Fund — This program provides funding to cover study-related safety and screening tests related to projects being conducted in the Clinical Research Unit (CRU).
- Small Grants Program — This program provides funding to departments/divisions for clinical and translational research projects that require only limited resources ($5,000-$10,000). Allocations are made directly to each clinical department/division based on number of staff employed. Departments/divisions utilize their own research committees to provide peer review and to grant individual awards.
- CCaTS Stimulus Award — A program that offers funds to support research-related technology costs. Potential uses of funds include — but are not limited to — accessing research core facilities and imaging services.
