The purpose of the Pilot Translational & Clinical Studies (PTC) Program of the OSU CCTS is to fund meritorious pilot projects by cross-disciplinary teams from The Ohio State University and Nationwide Children’s Hospital to generate preliminary data and refine research strategies for subsequent extramural grant applications or towards commercialization. The mission of CCTS Pilot Programs (PTC) is to catalyze innovation, translational science, team science and workforce development by funding or co-sponsoring projects. This is done through interdisciplinary teams with patient and community engagement to develop novel methods, tools, therapies, technologies and policies. The PTC program employs innovative funding mechanisms and programming dedicated to enhancing the quality and efficiency of translational endeavors.
