Pilot Funding

The funding programs offered by the CTSI Pilot Funding Core provide researchers at the University of Pittsburgh the necessary financial support to begin to translate innovative ideas into impactful research. Our funding programs offer investigators the opportunity to collect preliminary data that can then inform the design of future studies. By designing funding programs around specific areas of research, the Pilot Funding Core encourages investigators to expand their work into new and vital fields.
