The Oklahoma Clinical and Translational Science Institute (OCTSI) and Oklahoma Shared Clinical and Translational

Resources (OSCTR) is soliciting applications for its Clinical and Translational Research Pilot (CTRP) Grants Program

and its Community Engaged Research Exploratory Awards.

Oklahoma Shared Clinical and Translational Resources Clinical and Translational Research Pilot (CTRP) Grants

The purpose of the program is to provide funding for collaborative and/or multi-disciplinary clinical and translational

pilot projects between investigators of the OSCTR member institutions. The program seeks to support proposals designed

to generate preliminary data that will result in improved health and/or healthcare for citizens of Oklahoma and other IDeA

states and enhance the competitiveness of the investigators for future extramural funding. The program also seeks to

fund innovative concepts, approaches, and methodologies that bring fresh new ideas to solving the health issues of those

living in Oklahoma and collaborating IDeA states. Projects that focus on the medically underserved and on health concerns

prevalent within Oklahoma and our OSCTR partners will be a priority. Only projects which meet the NIH definition of clinical

and/or translational research will be accepted. Approved CTRP grants will be funded for a period starting January 1, 2020 contingent on NIH approval of just in time (JIT) information. All funds are required to be expended by December 31, 2020. The forms, instructions, and submission link can be found at:  Deadlines for submission:   Pilot Proposal – Friday, August 9, 2019 at 5:00 PM CDT

Oklahoma Shared Clinical and Translational Resources Community-Engaged Research Exploratory (CERE) Awards

This program is intended to support community engagement to develop funded research partnerships. Funds can be used

for research development activities, including convening partners, working with individuals pursuing related work, and

conducting needs assessments in community settings. The funds cannot be used to support actual human-subjects research

protocols, which can be funded under other OSCTR pilot research programs and/or external funding.

The application should consist of a 2-page letter from the main applicant (which can be either a community agency or an

academic researcher) describing the collaboration, the contributions that the proposed work will make to a successful research

partnership, and a line item budget. Budget requests are expected to be $5,000-$10,000 with budgets that permit the

expenditure of the entire award by June 30, 2020. A separate letter of support from either the academic or community partner

indicating their agreement with the proposed activities should also be included. Proposals will be evaluated on a rolling basis

beginning July 1, 2019. Please submit proposals by email to


Interested applicants can discuss their proposal, eligibility, allowable budget items, and available funding by contacting the

OSCTR staff at or call 405-271-3480. CERE Instructions 2019.pdf?ver=2019-07-01-074315-177 Pilot instructions 2019.pdf?ver=2019-07-01-074315-210
