RFA WFU CTSI Feasibility Study Award

West Forest School of Medicine Logo

Wake Forest Primate Signature Program provides access to nonhuman primates (NHPs) and related resources for studies that advance the CTSA network’s translational research. The objective is to facilitate the collection of data from NHPs in support of applications for extramural funding. To assist new NHP researchers, the award mechanism is intended to support project expenses and labor costs locally at Wake Forest and excludes PI effort and associated F&A from collaborating institutions.  The award includes faculty and technical support for in vivo studies, with no requirement for the awardee to be on-site. Ex vivo and data projects can be supported by sending data or samples to the investigator as needed.

Application Process

Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent (1 page maximum) by  May 6, 2022.  Please use Chrome or Firefox browser to activate the LOI survey link: https://redcap.link/a97yl4h8.  An invitation to apply, or notification that you have not been selected, will be sent by May 13, 2022. Please email primates@wakehealth.edu for answers to any questions and guidance in developing a proposal.
