- Harvard Catalyst Reactor: Accelerating Clinical and Translational Research
|Grants for clinical and translational research projects.||Pilot Funding|
Offered by Harvard Catalyst's Reactor Program, this pilot funding opportunity will provide up to $50,000 in funding and access to the Harvard Center for Biological Imaging (HCBI), which features advanced Zeiss microscopes, or the Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS), that offers electron microscopy, nanoscale fabrication, and nanoscale analysis capabilities, or access to both.
Funding will support the innovative application of light and electron microscopy, nanoscale fabrication, and nanoscale analysis technologies for big ideas that will advance clinical healthcare.
To apply, you are required to attend one of two educational events run by the Harvard Catalyst Reactor Program, or meet independently with the facility staff experts of HCBI and/or CNS to learn more about the technologies available and their capabilities.
Pilot grant proposals should describe innovative research projects that, if successful, could provide new insights into: (1) the application of new technologies to inform clinical decisions; (2) disease detection, causation, progression, or treatment; or (3) the development of new therapeutics, diagnostics, or clinically informative biomarkers. Applications need not be limited to these areas.
Areas of inquiry should focus on translational research and human healthcare. Proposals requiring experiments using non-human samples will also be considered if there is a clear and direct link to subsequent investigation using human specimens. Proposals investigating basic research questions or wholly directed to pre-clinical work will not be considered.
