Applications must be submitted through IRBe (requires that you be logged in to the Mayo network). In IRBe, applicants should answer "yes" to question 2 under Section 03 — General Information ("Will the Rochester Clinical Research Unit (CRU) and/or Translational Technology Cores (TTC) be utilized?"). Justification for funding requests should be included in Section 51.12 of the CRU/TTC Resource Summary ("Are you requesting Safety and Screening funds for this protocol?") — complete this section as appropriate to the study and resources requested.
Awards are made based upon project merit as evaluated by peer review, with funding decisions made by IRB-C. Review criteria include:
- Demonstrated need for funding, including a clear explanation why funds are not available in the project budget for the necessary safety and screening tests
- Strong preference will be given to:
- NIH-sponsored protocols
- Meritorious new-investigator proposals with the potential to result in NIH funding
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:
