W81XWH-17-SCIRP-TRA DoD Spinal Cord Injury Research Program, Translational Research Award Department of Defense Dept. of the Army -- USAMRAA

By: Regina Ramazzini

Deadline: Nov 29, 2017

Impact: Applications should articulate both the short- and long-term impact of the proposed research. Projects should address one or more of the FY17 SCIRP Areas of Encouragement or other research areas relevant to the mission of the SCIRP.The ultimate goal of translational research is to move an observation forward into clinical application and accelerate the clinical introduction of healthcare products, technologies, or practice guidelines. Observations that drive a research idea may be derived from a laboratory discovery, population-based studies, or a clinician’s first-hand knowledge of patients and anecdotal data. However, Principal Investigators (PIs) should not view translational research as a one-way continuum from bench to bedside. The research plan should involve a reciprocal flow of ideas and information between basic and clinical science. Developmental pathways for translational research that may be useful for designing translational research studies for support under this mechanism may be found at http://clincancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/ 14/18/5664.full (a report of the National Cancer Institute Translational Research Working Group); applicants are strongly encouraged to refer to these pathways in their applications.
