Pilot Grant Program
MICHR's Pilot Grant Program seeks proposals from basic, clinical, and social scientists for bench-to-bedside and bedside-to-practice translational research. The goal is to promote development of novel solutions that will ultimately improve patient and community health outcomes. In addition to clinical and translational research, we welcome proposals for studies on health services, health outcomes, or health policy that inform practice, development and testing and new hypotheses or interventions, and proposals relevant to developing new methods or best practices.
In the previous 17 rounds of Pilot Grants, MICHR has awarded more than $18M, resulting in more than $201M in extramural funding.
