Mountain west IDeA clinical and translational research — infrastructure network (CTR-IN)

CTR-IN's Mission:

  • To accelerate the development of capacity and the necessary institutional culture change,
  • To increase the quantity, quality and number of successful NIH grant applications in clinical and translational research,
  • In the seven Mountain West IDeA states, thereby accelerating scientific discovery to improve health in the region.

Hosted at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), our CTR-IN is supported by the NIH through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) #1U54GM104944-01A1 under the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) program. The IDeA CTR awards are focused on the development of clinical and translational research capacity in the IDeA states. The Mountain West CTR-IN will accomplish this by providing a range of services that will help investigators with faculty appointments at partner institution, develop the skills and experience to conduct clinical or translational research.

The CTR-IN program offers several levels of support for projects. In the next project year, July 1, 2015 through June 6, 2016, there will be:

  • Two RFAs for Mini-Grants for supporting ending June 30, 2016, with deadlines in October and January
  • An RFA for Pilot Grant support in the following project year, July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017, that will be released in late November/early December with applications due in March
  • A rolling RFA for up to five Visiting Scholar Awards
  • A rolling RFA for up to four Mini-Sabbatical Awards
