The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (Indiana CTSI) recently announced multiple recipients of the Collaboration in Translational Research Pilot (CTR) Grant Program. The CTR Program seeks to foster and encourage collaboration across Indiana CTSI partner institutions by awarding up to $75,000 for the projects.
In describing the awards, Rich Taylor, deputy director of the Indiana CTSI and professor of chemistry and biochemistry, said, “The CTR grant program provides an opportunity for faculty to enhance the translational aspects of their research by creating new collaborative relationships.”
The goal of the awarded translational projects is to have immediate potential to develop into larger, externally funded research programs or generate novel intellectual property.
Among the awarded grants in this cycle:
Joel Boerckel, assistant professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, and Margaret Schwarz, professor of pediatrics at the Indiana University School of Medicine – South Bend, will work together on a research project entitled, “Mediation of Arteriogenesis in tissue remodeling following Hind-Limb ischemia.”
