Pitt’s CTSI is offering a new pilot research funding opportunity in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Proposals must investigate a problem directly related to COVID-19. There are no restrictions on whether the work focuses on basic science, clinical science, epidemiology, health services, or psychosocial research. A preference will be made for projects with a well-described and direct path to reducing the harmful effects of the current COVID-19 pandemic for individuals, groups, and society.

Funding of up to $50,000 can be requested. Letters of Intent are due on Friday, April 3 at 11:59 p.m. Awardees can expect funding to begin as soon as Friday, May 1.
