The Robert A Winn Diversity in Clinical Trials: Career Development Award Application is now open! by Ali Gemma (Gemmaa@vcu.edu)
Winn CDA is a 2-year program designed to support the career development of early-stage investigator physicians (as defined by NIH) who are underrepresented in medicine (URM) or who have a demonstrated commitment to increasing diversity in clinical research. The program prepares participants to become independent clinical trial investigators engaged in advancing health equity through their research and mentoring. The goal of Winn CDA is to transform the clinical research landscape by building and strengthening partnerships between clinical investigators and the communities where their patients reside, with a goal of ultimately engaging a patient population that mirrors the epidemiology of the disease studied.
The Award provides$120K/year for 2 years; funding is to protect 40% of the Scholars’ work time for program participation.

Nonhuman Primate Feasibility Pilot Studies Request for Applications by Kylie Kavanagh (email@example.com)
The 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.
Statement of Eligibility
The submitting Principal Investigator (PI) must be a faculty member or KL2 Scholar from a CTSA supported institution external to Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Collaborations with Wake Forest University School of Medicine faculty are encouraged.
