The UAMS Translational Research Institute (TRI) is pleased to invite applications for TRI Pilot Awards. This request for applications (RFA) is seeking proposals with a focus on implementation science.

Implementation science is the study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine practice, and, hence, to improve the quality and effectiveness of health services.

For more information on implementation science, please refer to An introduction to implementation science for the non-specialist and NIH National Cancer Institute Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences’ website.

High priority areas for funding will be the development and pilot testing of implementation strategies in preparation for future large-scale research studies (e.g., R01), and implementation research in the context of rural and underserved populations and/or clinical locations.

These funding priorities serve the mission of TRI to develop new and novel approaches that will measurably address the complex health challenges of rural and underrepresented populations.

Budgets up to $50,000 will be considered.

Cover pages and letters of intent (LOI) are due by noon, Sept. 11, 2017, to nlindelicato@UAMS.edu. Please contact Nia Indelicato at 501-526-0363 if you have any questions.
