Application Process Overview
The CTSC offers a variety of Services and Resources to support clinical and translational research. Investigators can request these resources at any time using our electronic protocol authoring and review system (ePAR). Shortened applications with expedited review ("expedited short forms") are available for studies meeting certain criteria. Resource application types are described below.
Full Resource Application. Projects that are requesting use of CTSC patient care resources (inpatient/outpatient units, nutrition research and services, and/or research ancillary support) and have not been previously peer-reviewed and approved submit a full resource application which undergoes full committee review by the Translational Research Advisory Committee (TRAC). These applications are accepted on a rolling basis and review decisions are made at monthly TRAC meetings.
Expedited Application for Externally Peer-Reviewed and Approved Studies. Projects with prior external peer review and approval that are requesting CTSC patient care resources (inpatient/outpatient units, nutrition research and services, and/or research ancillary support) may use a shortened application with expedited review. These applications do not require full meeting review, and have a typical review turnaround time of approximately one week from date of submission.
Expedited Application for Biostatistics and/or Core Lab Only. Projects requesting biostatistical, general core laboratory, and/or molecular core services, with or without research data management services, may use our expedited application for biostatistics and/or core lab only (aka "Core-Only Application"). This is a shorter application than those described above and undergoes expedited review with a typical turnaround time of one week from the time the application is submitted.
Short Application for REDCap (Data Management Services). Projects needing ONLY REDCap-based research data management services may use our short application for REDCap ("REDCap-only Application"). This is the CTSC's shortest application form; REDCap-only applications undergo administrative review by Jessie Lee, MS (Research Data Management Project Manager and are typically approved within several business days of submission.
At specific times of the year, the CTSC accepts applications for training and seed funding awards. Depending upon the award type, these awards may cover partial or full salary support and/or other project-related funding needs. Award applications are accepted only in response to specific RFAs, which are normally released in December of each year, with a February submission deadline and June funding date. Award applications include Seed Funding Applications and Training Applications, as described below.
- Seed Funding Applications. These include applications for pilot and community-based research awards.
- Training Award Applications. These include applications for the KL2 Post-Doctoral Scholars Awards, TL1 Training Awards, and the K30 didactic training programs leading to an Advanced Certificate or Master of Science degree in Clinical Investigation. The latest RFAs can be found at the links below:
