YCCI invites applications from Yale faculty for new initiatives in translational and interdisciplinary research that focus on important aspects of human disease. Translational research includes:
- Applying discoveries generated during research in the laboratory and in preclinical studies to the development of trials and studies in humans.
- Research aimed at enhancing the adoption of best practices in the community, including cost-effectiveness of prevention and treatment strategies.
The goal is to foster new projects that bring together investigators from diverse disciplines to study important problems in clinical medicine. Funds should be used to assemble teams and generate preliminary data that will result in programs that are competitive for extramural funding.
