Collaborative Funding Awards

Pilot and Collaborative Translational and Clinical Studies (PCTCS)

The purpose of the PCTCS program is to develop, monitor, and expand a process to facilitate and support pilot and collaborative translational and clinical studies that result in increased institutional and community-based trans-disciplinary research with a goal of improved health. Our strategy is to bring all IIMS pilot and collaborative study review and funding decisions into a single mechanism to allow maximum flexibility and programmatic balance. In addition to investigator-initiated applications, the PCTCS will also support the review and funding of applications submitted in response to RFAs from five other IIMS key function groups. The review process will be two-tiered. The initial review will be by a group of experts in the subject matter of the application using the NIH grading system. The second review will be by the IIMS Director, all of the Co-PIs and members of the Community Advisory Board and funding decisions will be based on scientific merit, as well as programmatic considerations, such as breadth and depth of the overall pilot study portfolio, community involvement, and balance among program areas.

San Antonio Life Sciences Institute (SALSI)

Authorized by the 77th Texas Legislature in 2003, the University of Texas System, UT Health San Antonio, and the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) formed the San Antonio Life Sciences Institute (SALSI) to promote greater scientific collaboration between the two institutions and to increase both the UT Health San Antonio's and UTSA's research-funding base with cross campus collaborative programs. This program aims to encourage interaction between investigators in support of the acquisition of established extramural, peer-reviewed research funding.

Translational Technology Resources

The purpose of this function is to develop and sustain an innovative paradigm to facilitate availability and use of state-of-the-art technologies for translational research. We will provide funding in support of translational research that utilizes technology resources.
