CTSI Pilot Projects Awarded
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) has selected 19 pilot projects for funding. Pooling of the resources of the College of Medicine, Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, the Social Science Research Institute, and the Institute for CyberScience enabled support of a larger–than–anticipated number of projects, reflecting the strong commitment of CTSI and the other Institutes to supporting innovative and collaborative translational research. The projects involve 57 faculty members at both campuses that span nine colleges. Thanks to all those faculty who submitted proposals – the projects reflect Penn State’s depth and diversity of research.
