The UCLA CTSI R Bridge Award

The UCLA CTSI R Bridge Award is for highly qualified, new investigators who conduct interdisciplinary and translational research. These awards are specifically intended to help new investigators make the critical transition to independent NIH R01 funding, allowing those who have received competitive scores on their first R01 proposals to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to remain scientifically productive and strengthen their proposals for resubmission.
