Global Health Reciprocal Innovation Planning Award

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Planning Grant applications are accepted year-round while funds are available

The goal of this request for applications (RFA) is to facilitate the planning and designing of reciprocal innovation projects focusing on one of the identified priority areas: chronic diseases, such as, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity; improve health outcomes for infants and their mothers; reduce substance use disorders, such as alcohol abuse and opioid addiction; and increase access to healthcare. Activities in this RFA will be implemented through principal investigators from Indiana CTSI institutions (IU, Purdue, and Notre Dame) and collaborative partnerships between Indiana state health partners, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, health systems, government agencies, and partners from low- or middle-income countries (LMIC). The planning efforts must demonstrate an understanding of shared health challenges in underserved communities in Indiana and LMIC partner sites, as well as a commitment to the development of new programs or partnerships that will result in the development and demonstration of reciprocal innovation projects.

This award is designed to provide preliminary support for investigators to establish partnerships, develop project teams, identify promising health innovations for demonstration, develop evidence to support the demonstration of a reciprocal innovation in Indiana or at an LMIC partner site, conduct training to prepare for a reciprocal innovation demonstration project, and other activities needed to prepare competitive demonstration grant applications for reciprocal innovation.

Applicants may request up to $10,000 for a period of 1 year.

University of Notre Dame Matching Funds: University of Notre Dame Eck Institute for Global Health will provide up to $10,000 matching funds for successful Notre Dame faculty and affiliated members of the Eck Institute for Global Health. Researchers who meet this criterion may submit a budget inclusive of this additional funding. For questions on eligibility, please contact Nydia Morales-Soto (nsoto@nd.edu).

Pilot Funding for Research Use of Core Facilities (Spring)

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: APRIL 6, 2020 - EXTENDED

The Indiana CTSI Pilot Funding program is intended to promote the use of technologies and expertise afforded by the Indiana CTSI Core Facilities available at all partner institutions. Successful proposals will demonstrate outstanding scientific merit that can be linked to generating extramural funding or novel intellectual property (IP). Success of the program will be viewed, in part, by the fostering of new funded grants or providing significant contributions to grant renewals. Therefore, proposals will be judged with equal measure on scientific merit and the likelihood of generating new IP or extramural grant support.

Funding is for a maximum requested amount of $10,000; projects are typically two years in duration.

Funding is for utilization of designated Indiana CTSI core facilities only. Information describing each core is available at https://indianactsi.org/servicecores/

A letter from each Core Director where service is required and must be included in the application.

Community Health Partnerships (CHeP) Trailblazer Planning Grant

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 3, 2020

The Indiana CTSI Community Health Partnerships is soliciting proposals for the development of community-university partnerships to improve health, examine social determinants of health, or enhance health equity to result in future collaborative research proposals. The award can be used to establish new partnerships or to strengthen/expand existing community-university partnerships to solve critical health problems affecting Hoosiers. This award will not fund research pilots; instead, it will fund activities that help develop partnerships between organizations that have potential to later engage in joint research projects to address health, health equity or social determinants of health. The expected outcome of this partnership development award is the development of a future research proposal for opportunities such as the Trailblazer Award. Examples of partnership development activities we are interested in funding include meetings, conferences, travel expenses, and quality improvement assessments.

Awards will be up to $5,000 for one year to allow for partnership growth and collaborative grant proposal development.
