Award Programs

Advance-CTR supports collaborative, inter-disciplinary research projects that address community health priorities in Rhode Island.

Advance-CTR offers two annual award programs to clinical and translational researchers in Rhode Island. They are the Pilot Projects Program and the Mentored Research Awards.

The awards support projects that span the translational research spectrum, from basic and preclinical research, to clinical research and implementation studies, through to population-level outcome studies focused on public health and social determinants of health.
