OTA Member Full Research Grant


Funding Objective: The goal of the OTA Full Member Grant is to provide funding for clinical, translational, or basic research projects that can be completed within the 24-month funding period. The expectation is that successful projects will result in a completed project with peer-reviewed publication or result in sufficient data to support external funding opportunities.

Eligibility: Either the principal investigator, or co-principal investigator must be an OTA Active, Clinical, or Research member in good standing, with no outstanding reporting requirements for currently active OTA-funded projects. Residents and Fellows are not eligible to apply for a Full Member Grant as the PI. The research must be conducted in North America. You may apply in more than one grant category, if applicable.
