November 14, 2016

The Translational Therapeutics Resource (TRx) is a therapeutic development accelerator program with the goal of advancing novel therapies from the lab to the clinic. The annual TRx pilot award and boot camp is designed to provide investigators with the resources to develop a commercially relevant targeted product profile and meet targeted 12-month milestones. Pre-proposals will be reviewed for eligibility, then selected projects will go through a drug development boot camp led by experts in the field and result in generation of a full proposal. The full proposals will be reviewed for funding in Spring of 2017.

The initial award period is 12 months; however, outstanding projects with excellent progress will be considered for a second year of funding to further advance development towards commercialization. Additional funding is contingent on competitive review and the availability of funds.

Duration: 1 year
