The BU CTSI Needs Your Help!

As per the NOFO, these projects must address a roadblock in translational science.  Specifically, projects must not only “address a translational research question in a particular disease or intervention development/dissemination context, but also provide generalizable CTS innovations or insights that can be applied to other translational research projects.”

Preference will be given to projects that focus on translational science issues that are of relevance to marginalized populations or health equity, including areas that are research strengths for BMC/BU and areas of focus for the BMC Health Equity Accelerator (e.g. pregnancy equity; infectious diseases; behavioral health; chronic conditions; oncology; end-stage renal disease).

Projects should have the ability to begin collecting data within the next few months to allow us to build the case for the next grant submission.  We estimate being able to commit funds to preliminary data gathering over the next 12 months.

Please send 1-2 paragraphs outlining the problem to be addressed (including its relationship to team science), the focus and methods of the project, and the proposed team to Helia Morris (
