Early Clinical Data Support for Grant Submissions
This Harvard Catalyst initiative provided the resources needed to generate preliminary data that would be included in a future application for NIH K or R funding (or equivalent federal or nonfederal peer-reviewed sponsored research). It was anticipated that Harvard investigators would leverage this support at a critical time in their careers so that they may compete successfully for federal and non-federal sponsored funding.
This funding opportunity was open to all Harvard investigators, irrespective of type of degree or institutional affiliation, who are applying for a peer-reviewed clinical research grant (at the K or R level).
Twenty-two investigators were awarded amounts of up to $30,000 for each project. See who received funding [PDF].
Funding decisions for the Early Clinical Data Support for Grant Submissions opportunity were announced in January 2015.
