CTSI is pleased to recognize all our awardees and have their projects readily available to our community. Click on each of the RFAs below to see their list of awardees.

CTSI Catalyst Awardees

Catalyst Grants support team-building activities that advance translational science and promote collaborations across disciplines and CTSI institutions. Awards range from $100 to $5,000, depending on the nature scope of the project. Typically, there are three award cycles each year. View the RFA.

CTSI Voucher Awardees

CTSI provides the infrastructure to translate scientific discoveries into innovations that improve health in Los Angeles and the nation. To achieve its mission and advance translational research, the CTSI periodically awards vouchers to defray the cost of core services. Under this RFA, the CTSI T1/T2 Accelerator Program (previously known as the Core Voucher Program), will award vouchers worth up to $10,000 in core services to investigators whose primary appointment is at UCLA Westwood, Lundquist/Harbor-UCLA, Cedars-Sinai and Charles R. Drew University. View the RFA.

CTSI / CSORDA Pilot Awardees

CSORDA, a NIDA-funded P50 Center at UCLA with support from the CTSI, awards applications with high-quality, innovative research that is in opioid-related areas and of relevance to the CSORDA mission. Any approach, from basic to preclinical or clinical research that involves exogenous or endogenous opioid actions, is considered. Engagement of CSORDA UCLA Cores is encouraged. Up to $20,000/year is available (or $40,000/year with justified clinical translational significance). View the RFA.

CTSI / CURE Pilot Awardees

The CURE: Digestive Diseases Research Core Center (CURE: DDRCC) and CTSI award applications (new or second year renewal) with high quality and innovative research in the biology, function and diseases of the digestive system, which is of relevance to the overall CURE Research Program, with special emphasis on receptor and signal transduction mechanisms, brain-gut interactions, neurogastroenterology, gastrointestinal and pancreatic physiology, pathophysiology and inflammation, and mechanisms underlying diseases of the digestive system. Proposed projects should lead to peer-reviewed extramural funding such as NIH, VA or related agency research grants in which PFS awardees serve as Principal Investigators. View the RFA.

CTSI / CART Pilot Awardees

The UCLA Center for Autism Research and Treatment (CART) takes applications for grants to fund pilot and/or feasibility studies for biomedical, epidemiological, or behavioral research. This funding is made available with departmental “Autism Initiative” funds to CART and matching funds via CTSI pilot funds. Preference is given to projects that are likely to lead to successful future funding (by R01-type awards, etc). Proposals addressing the mechanism and treatment of autism are encouraged. View the RFA.

CTSI / Iris-Cantor Women's Health Center Awardees

Iris Cantor-UCLA Women's Health Center / CTSI funds can be used to focus on, expand, or strengthen a research project's applicability to women's health and/or research where exploration of sex and gender-based differences is relevant. Funding categories include: augmentation awards, pilot awards, young investigator awards (applicants must have a sponsoring, principal, mentor who holds a UCLA faculty appointment) and funding for research in health disparities. View the RFA.

CTSI / RCMAR-CHIME Pilot Awardees

The UCLA Resource Centers for Minority Aging Research Center for Health Improvement of Minority Elderly (RCMAR/CHIME) and CTSI Pilot Project Award awards applications for one-year awards. Awards of up to $55,000 are accepted for under-represented minority junior- and mid-level faculty and post-doctoral researchers. Awardees conduct a pilot research project that focuses on minority older adult populations. Support is given to pilot research projects that are consistent with the goal of the RCMAR/CHIME to provide research training and mentoring to under-represented minority junior- and midlevel faculty so they can advance their academic careers by conducting research that contributes to the reduction of health disparities affecting minority elders. View the RFA.

UCLA / DHS Safety Net Innovation / Implementation Science Awardees

CTSI and the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (LAC DHS) are partnering to develop and test interventions to enhance quality, efficiency and patient-centeredness of care provided by the LAC DHS. Pilot grants of up to $150,000 support the design and small scale implementation of interventions within DHS that will achieve the goals of quality, efficiency and patient centered care. The project is completed within 2 years of notice of award. The DHS provides additional resources and operational support for the selected projects. When completed, successful pilot projects will serve as a base for sustaining extramural funding to implement and formally evaluate the intervention(s) on a larger scale and longer timeframe within DHS. View the RFA.

UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine Seed Grant Program Awardees

The David Geffen School of Medicine (DGSOM) Research Themes, in collaboration with the Institute of Precision Health (IPH), offer the DGSOM Seed Grant Program in an effort to promote the assembly of teams of scientists that are well-positioned to perform innovative, high-impact research and ultimately compete for large team science grants from federal agencies and private foundations. Awardees may include faculty throughout the UCLA campus in any biomedical or medical research area in which groundbreaking advances catalyzed by teams of researchers can be envisioned. View the RFA.
