The mission of TRI is to develop new and novel approaches that will measurably address the complex health challenges of rural and underrepresented populations in Arkansas. The TRI Pilot Award Program currently seeks applications that will employ novel approaches in or address any of the following focus areas: Health concerns and challenges of rural and underrepresented populations; implementation science to incorporate new research findings into the health care system, including rural practices; biomedical informatics approaches that examine unique state data resources; team science approaches to address health challenges in Arkansas or overcome barriers to translational science; and/or community and/or stakeholder-partnered research.
Priority will be given to projects that generate critical data to improve competitiveness for future extramural funding. Projects at all phases of the translational spectrum will be considered, but priority will be given to projects that meet an immediate translational need or that can be incorporated into clinical practice in the short-term. Projects with the potential to develop into future multi-site studies will be given special consideration.
