Applications are due by midnight Friday, Jan. 25, 2013 for innovative research addressing ethical issues in clinical and translational research, and biostatistical, epidemiological, and other methods developments.
The Research Ethics Grant Program supports interdisciplinary empirical research and faculty summer research fellowships that aim to develop, inform, or apply morally, socially and culturally acceptable frameworks that maximize the ethics of conducting clinical and translational research.
Collaborations of clinical investigators, ethicists, and behavioral/social scientists on interdisciplinary empirical research are strongly encouraged.
The Methodologic Research Program advances methodologic research in biostatistics, epidemiology, bioinformatics and related disciplines in order to enhance the capacity to conduct and analyze data from clinical and translational studies.
Promising innovations with potentially important applications that may enhance validity, efficiency, and causal inference of clinical and translational studies are supported. Relevance for clinical and translational research is a key evaluation criterion, and coordination with ongoing CCTST research is encouraged.
Each program expects to make 2 to 3 non-renewable 1-year awards of up to $10,000 (up to $8,000 for the ethics faculty summer fellowship). All 80% or greater FTE faculty members based at UC, Cincinnati Children’s or the Cincinnati VA Medical Center are eligible to apply.
