Funding - Innovation Accelerator Pilot Program



Community Engagement Pilot Program


In keeping with its core mission, the Stanford Center for Clinical Translational Research (Spectrum) offers grants for accelerating clinical and translational research in biomedical and health-related areas.

The Spectrum Pilot Grant Program has two major goals:

  • to stimulate innovative clinical and translational research and
  • to encourage collaborative, transdisciplinary work.

The primary expectation is that these early-stage translational projects will lead to additional research, external support, information dissemination and most importantly, will develop into longer-term, comprehensive projects. We encourage transdisciplinary collaborations, but this is not a requirement for funding.
