Government: The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) have announced Request for Applications (RFAs) for its new Institutional Clinical and Translational Science Awards program. Designed to encourage novel approaches to clinical and translational research, the awards will go to academic health centers and will be administered by the National Center for Research Resources. The NIH will award four to seven grants totaling $30 million in fiscal 2006 and will allocate $11.5 million to 50 planning grants. By 2012, the number of awards is expected to reach 60, totaling $500 million annually. Clinical research is defined as studies involving human subjects. Translational research encompasses the process of applying lab discoveries as well as the adoption of best treatment practices. RFA areas of focus include the development of novel clinical and translational research methodologies, such as new phenotyping methods, research biomarker development and predictive toxicology, and translational technologies and resources.
