We are happy to announce, on behalf of the Clinical and Translational Research Executive Committee (CTREC), availability of matching funds to help pay for the costs of ancillary tests, (radiology studies, lab studies in excess of the $60 per day per patient available through Harvard Catalyst, nutritionist support, DXA scans, and other related services) for clinical trials protocols of junior investigators.
The goals of the program are:
To foster high-quality clinical and translational research by talented junior investigators.
To give departmental leaders a greater voice in determination of whom to support for use of limited CTREC funds.
To help bridge the gap in support at the Clinical and Translational Study Unit (CTSU) which arose after GCRC grant funding became unavailable for ancillary tests in January, 2009.
We do hope that you and your division/department take advantage of this funding. Please contact Colette Hendricks, 617-355-7541, if you have any questions.
