Applications must be submitted via the IRBe system by April 19, 2013 for awards starting July 1.
In addition to the documents required by the IRBe system, the following documents are also required:
- NIH biographical sketch of the principal investigator and all co-investigators, including a list of all active and pending grant support
- Letter from the applicant describing how this study will lead to future NIH funding
- Letter from a senior faculty member who agrees to serve as a research mentor outlining the mentoring plan for this project
- Letter from the applicant's department chair agreeing to provide departmental support for 20 percent Category I research time for 24 months, should the award be granted
Applications will be reviewed and scored by the IRB-C Committee. Review criteria include:
- Innovation of the proposed study
- Scientific rigor of the research design and methods
- Education, training and prior research experience of the principal investigator
- Environment in which the study will be conducted, including use of CTSA resources and facilities
- Potential for the study findings to lead to future NIH support and publications
The CTSA Executive Committee will select the awardees based on NIH-type scores provided by the IRB-C Committee. The awardees will be notified by the end of May with funding to begin July 1.
Awardees must submit a report to the program director and the IRB-C Committee annually. The awardee will be required to acknowledge use of the CTSA in any resulting peer-reviewed publications.
The NIH Public Access Policy requires that all publications resulting from NIH funding be uploaded to PubMed Central. CTSA awards, including intramurally funded awards, must follow this policy. The Mayo Clinic Public Access Policy intranet site (requires that you be logged in to the Mayo network) will guide awardees through the process of uploading publications.
Please remember to cite the Mayo Clinic CTSA in your publication.
