Just-In-Time Core Grant Program

Most recent application deadline was November 1, 2017.

The mission of the Just-In-Time (JIT) grant mechanism is to enable investigators to use UC or CCHMC Core facilities to obtain critical data for submission of a competitive extramural proposal, patent application or commercialization agreement. This small grants program is designed to support clinical and translational science investigators who require the services of an institutional core to develop key preliminary data for federal (K23, R01, DOD, VA, etc.), foundation or professional association grant funding. Investigators may apply for up to $7,500 annually for core services that would directly facilitate the submission of a new or revised application for extramural funding. The Just-In-Time funding must be spent within the fiscal year awarded (by June 30, 2018).

Please note that applications must be submitted through the CCTST Competition and Awards Program Site (CCAPS): https://ccaps.research.cchmc.org/welcome. Log in using your UC (“6+2”) or CCHMC username and password.  For more information, email Laura Reedy or call 513-803-1412.
