2018- 2019 DOM Clinical and Innovative Therapeutic Award Pilot Program

UT Health San Antonio Department of Medicine LogoTo stimulate a culture of research and academic inquisitiveness, the DOM has allocated funds to support pilot projects that will lead to the submission of more competitive applications for extramural funding. This funding opportunity supports the DOM Strategic Plan.

We invite the submission of applications for pilot studies to collect preliminary data in preparation for submission to NIH and other extramural funding sources requiring preliminary data. Clinical trials and novel therapeutic ideas are encouraged. Investigator-initiated clinical trials for understanding pathophysiology, biomarkers or therapeutics are encouraged as well as basic science studies to develop or test a novel therapeutic for disease indication relevant to the Department of Medicine.
