Design and Biostatistics Program (DBP) Pilot Grant – 2017.02

LETTER OF INTENT (LOI) DEADLINE – DECEMBER 16, 2016
FULL APPLICATION DEADLINE – FEBRUARY 6, 2017 (5:00 PM)

The Design and Biostatistics Program (DBP) of the Indiana Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is comprised of 8 units with associated expertise:  1) Department of Biostatistics, IU School of Medicine and Fairbanks School of Public Health; 2) Division of Hereditary Genomics, Department of Medical & Molecular Genetics, IU School of Medicine; 3) Computational Biology, Center for Computational Biology & Bioinformatics, IU School of Medicine; 4) Department of Epidemiology, Fairbanks School of Public Health; 5) Department of Statistics, Purdue College of Science; 6) Department of  Applied & Computational Math & Statistics, Notre Dame School of Science; 7) Department of Statistics, IU Bloomington College of Arts & Sciences; 8) Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, IU Bloomington School of Public Health.

To achieve its objectives and stimulate development for emerging translational research needs, the DBP will fund innovative pilot projects that support methodological research of faculty members in the eight units that comprise the DBP. The total budget for the entire RFA is $20,000, and it is expected that up to two awards will be funded at approximately $10,000 per award for a twelve month duration.  The objective of this mechanism is to fund research proposals that will synergize methodological strengths and translational biomedical research of the DBP, and in particular, the following types of research proposals:

  • Research projects that propose to develop novel methodology (such as biostatistical, epidemiological, genetic, and bioinformatics methods).
  • Research projects that match novel methodology with translational science needs.
  • Research projects that have high potential to obtain external funding.

Preference will be given to investigators who have not already received extramural funding.
Applications to this program are expected to be $10,000 per award and are of one (1) year duration.
