Translational Research Program | Funding | Translational Innovator Award

In order to stimulate and enable high-risk, high-reward innovative research at Boston Children's Hospital, the Translational Research Program (TRP) partners with a different research program at Boston Children's Hospital every other year to offer the The Translational Innovator Award.

This two-year up to $400,000 (directs) award is intended to fund the most promising yet high risk research that will result in discoveries that will likely have a major impact on child heath. This award promotes the TRP's mission of stimulating the development of non-clinical and human clinical trials that seek to improve the care of children, as well as enabling new goals for understanding, diagnosing and treating patients.

Contact the TRP at with any questions.

Building on our extraordinary leadership in pediatric science at Boston Children’s, we translate our findings — and those of others — to fundamentally change how disease is treated and cured.
