Small Translation Grants – One Year Later



In this Grand Round meet the recipients of the inaugural small translation research grants. Launched last year by the Clinical Research Incubator, this funding initiative aimed to empower 10 RCH clinicians who were new to research, including nurses, doctors, and allied health professionals. This campus initiative supported by MCRI, provided 10 grants of $10,000 to clinicians to undertake a small research project addressing questions or problems relevant to their patients. With an overwhelming response of 73 applications from across the hospital, join us to hear the remarkable journeys of some of our successful recipients. Hear firsthand about their goals, achievements and the strides they’ve made throughout this year.
