Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics: Proposals
October 3, 2006, Volume 53, No. 6

The Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (ITMAT) invites proposals from ITMAT Members and ITMAT Associate Members in the Research Associate or Instructor A category. It is not too late to become a Member or an Associate Member if you would like to apply for the grant and meet membership criterion. If you are interested, please visit the membership section of our website (www.itmat.upenn.edu/membership.shtml) for details.

ITMAT plans to support translational research through its Transdisciplinary Awards Program in Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (TAPITMAT). We are planning to fund 4 to 6 proposals in the range of $100,000–$150,000. These proposals require at least two Co-Principal Investigators, ideally from different disciplines within the University of Pennsylvania, at least one of whom has a primary appointment in the School of Medicine. The proposals must center on the translational space—from proof of concept in cells or model systems through to completion of dose selection in Phase II in humans. Programs that plan to progress within that space and which deploy technologies and approaches conventionally segregated from each other within the traditional boundaries of academic medicine will be especially favored. The proposals are due by December 15, 2006 for a proposal start date of February 1, 2007. Please visit our website at www.itmat.upenn.edu/funding.shtml for detailed instructions.

—Garret A. FitzGerald, Director, ITMAT
