Children's Hospital Colorado Research Institute - Research Funding


 

One of the major activities of the Research Institute is the funding of the creative new ideas and projects of faculty and staff. The Research Institute has developed a number of funding programs for completely new ideas (Pilot Grant Awards); for the development of new faculty and staff until such time as they are ready to compete for external awards (Research Scholar Awards); for projects that help the hospital discover better ways to provide care to our patients (Quality Systems Improvement Awards); and for nurses who need assistance to translate a good idea into an active research protocol (Small Nursing Grants). In the event that an investigator loses their funding, TCHRI is available to provide temporary funds until the external source is reestablished (Bridge Fund Awards).

Between 2006 to 2008, the Research Institute awarded approximately $1.2 million each year to members of the staff and faculty. This initial investment allowed our investigators to collect the necessary preliminary data to be competitive nationally in their applications for funding to outside agencies such as NIH. Each of these external grants involves expenses ranging from fifty thousand to one million dollars and allows our scientists to make the innovative discoveries that will bring the cures of today’s diseases within our reach and provide the new treatments for children’s diseases tomorrow.
