The vision of the CCTS is to ameliorate disparities in conditions that disproportionately affect minority and special populations within our region, not limited to cardiometabolic, vascular and cancer-related diseases. Through funding opportunities, we seek to develop the future workforce in a spirit that fosters collaboration, team science, and innovative discovery.

CCTS is here to brainstorm research ideas early in the conceptual phase; to hone study aims; to consider preliminary data that is in hand or may be needed for a competitive grant proposal. Learn more about Nascent Project Panels.

UAB Policy when the number of submissions is limited by sponsor:

Some sponsors restrict the total number of applications submitted per institution, school, and/or discipline. When the sponsor's program guidelines stipulate a limit, an internal review process may be necessary to determine the applicant(s) or proposal(s) to represent UAB. Please see these guidelines.
