Intramural grants for pilot and feasibility studies in research related to arthritis, inflammation, or autoimmunity are available to support innovative, imaginative, and promising biomedical research in disciplines related to the broad mission of the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS).
The CCTS Pilot Program, the Translational Research Intramural Grant Program, is a partnership between the CCTS and the Council of Center Directors (COCD). The goal of the program is to develop investigator-initiated pilot projects with a focus on creating new interdisciplinary clinical and translational research projects at UAB in order to grow mature research programs in these areas.
The Health Services Foundation – General Endowment Fund (HSF-GEF) supports research, educational, and clinical programs which are deemed in the best interest of the UAB Medical Center and for UAB university-wide projects which are consistent with institutional priorities of the HSF. These awards are intended to enhance the infrastructure of Academic Health Center’s Patient-Oriented and Laboratory Research efforts, Clinical Care Program Development, and Medical Education Initiatives.
The Strategic Planning initiative of the School of Medicine is committed to developing programs in Immunology, Autoimmunity and Transplantation by emphasizing scientific discovery as the foundation of translational medicine, new diagnostics, treatments and cures. These investments aim to strengthen the research enterprise as well as the academic and clinical portfolios to optimize UAB as a world class academic medical center in the 21st century. To echo this mission, the Immunology, Autoimmunity and Transplantation Community provides funding for rigorous, peer-reviewed pilot and feasibility programs and multi-investigator research efforts.
