Other Intramural Grants
- Catalyst Awards. Catalyst is a twice-yearly consultation and funding program run by UCSF’s Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI) to increase the commercial and clinical viability of UCSF innovations at the pre-licensing stage. Typically preliminary data and the potential for intellectual property are prerequisites for eligibility. Grants of up to $100,000 are offered.
- UC Center for Accelerated Innovation (UC CAI). The UC CAI runs an annual funding competition open to the five UC medical campuses to support the development of novel technologies (drugs, devices, diagnostics, and tools) that address heart, lung, and blood diseases. Grants of up to $200,000 for two years are offered.
- Resource Allocation Program (RAP). RAP is a campus-wide program that coordinates intramural research funding opportunities from various UCSF agencies twice per year in September and February. Most awards are in the $30,000-$40,000 range and generally support pilot projects and faculty career development. See RAP website for a complete list of opportunities.
