ICTR FREE Cores of Services
Applications accepted daily. To request resources, log in to ICTR Core Service Request using your UMID to apply for services via the ICTR Core Services Request Form (developed in REDCap).
- ICTR Biostatistics Core
- ICTR Community Collaboration Core (CCC)
- ICTR Informatics Core
- ICTR Studios Program
The ICTR collaborates with biostatistics, informatics, and community engagement experts from all schools across campus to provide faculty researchers up to 25 hours of free services. In addition to these services, the ICTR encourages researchers to take advantage of the free Studios program. Studios are series of integrated, dynamic, and interactive "roundtable" discussions that bring relevant research experts to assist the research in hypothesis generation, study design, biostatistics, implementation, analysis and interpretation, recruitment, and research ethics.
ICTR Voucher Program
Applications reviewed every 2 months. Visit the ICTR Voucher Program for more information.
The ICTR Voucher Program awards vouchers (micro-grants) to enable preliminary work and generation of pilot data on clinical and translational research projects and to defray the cost of services offered by the CIBR, GCRC, BIORESCO, NORC, UMMC IDS and routine lab tests (e.g., chemistry, CBC), and for some community-engaged research expenses. UMB faculty with IRB-approved ATIP grants, K awards, or other federally-funded or extramural, peer-reviewed grants may be eligible for up to $10,000 in Voucher support to help defray the costs of these services. Non-funded projects generating preliminary data for future grant submissions may be eligible for Voucher support up to $5,000.
ATIP Grant Program
The Accelerated Translational Incubator Pilot (ATIP) Grant Program provides funds to initiate, implement, and complete a research project that will contribute to the development of new therapies, devices, or approaches to clinical and community-focused research. The ICTR will award pilot grants up to $50,000 to investigators at UMB, with some awards earmarked for community-focused research. For more information, go to ATIP Grant Program FOA. The next round of applications will be accepted in January, 2019.
