Tufts CTSI supports a wide range of research initiatives though a diverse portfolio of funding opportunities. Our open funding opportunities are listed below. We encourage you to bookmark this page and visit again soon for future opportunities.

Small Grants to Advance Translational Science (S-GATS) Program

The S-GATS Program seeks proposals for innovative and collaborative projects aimed at advancing the science of translation. Applicants are expected to help identify translational methods and processes relevant across a range of diseases, treatments, and interventions. The key objective of the projects should be to develop methodological innovations and/or produce crosscutting solutions for common and persistent challenges to reduce, remove, or bypass significant bottlenecks across the continuum of translation. The initial Letter of Intent submission will be accepted through Wednesday, October 4, 2023.

Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC) Voucher Program

The CTRC Voucher Program offers direct research support to unfunded or underfunded non-industry clinical studies and trials. The program aims to accelerate and facilitate implementation of such studies and trials by providing access to CTRC’s specialized clinical services and state-of-the-art facilities available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at in- and out-patient facilities at Tufts Medical Center. Until further notice, the proposals for the CTRC Voucher Program will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Informatics Voucher Program

The Tufts CTSI Informatics Program seeks to support innovative and promising clinical and translational research projects that would benefit from informatics services through a new Informatics Voucher Program. Qualified projects include preliminary investigations or other small studies with clear objectives. Proposed projects must have an underlying research hypothesis and a defined plan and timeline for seeking future extramural funding for a follow-on study, publication of results in a peer-reviewed journal, and/or dissemination and implementation of findings through other relevant mechanisms.
