The Pilot and Collaborative Studies Resource (PCSR) is central to achieving the goals of the Irving Institute by providing incentives to both young clinical and translational (C/T) investigators, as they obtain pilot data prior to submitting funding applications, and more senior investigators who may not otherwise engage in multi- and interdisciplinary research.
- Expanding and optimizing the utilization of outstanding new and existing resources on CUMC
- Training a new generation of multidisciplinary clinical and translational investigators
- Enhancing recruitment of exceptional clinical and translational investigators to pre-clinical and clinical departments at CUMC
- Creating incentives for mentoring junior faculty and outreach from one department or school or campus to other interested researchers
It is strongly advised that any investigator interested in applying for a PCSR pilot award, submit a request for a pre-application consultation.
A two-phase program that provides planning and start-up funding to newly-configured investigative teams to support the planning of novel, cross disciplinary projects. Click here to view the impact a CaMPR award funded interdisciplinary team has had on patients' lives.
Irving Institute/CTO Pilot Award
Co-Sponsored by the Clinical Trials Office, this program provides one-time, $50,000-awards for junior faculty from the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons to conduct pilot studies leading to future independent funding.
Provides funding for junior investigators in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), optical imaging, PET tomography, single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT), and ultrasound.
