Request for Proposals for Case CCC Funding for Pilot/Phase I Clinical Trials

The Case CCC is encouraging investigators to submit Letters of Intent (LOI) for Early Phase Clinical Research Support (EPCRS) funding. These in-house funds are available for the conduct of early phase clinical trials of relatively short duration. Priority will be given to trials which are developed jointly between UH and CCF with planned accrual at both institutions.

The proposals are being accepted on a rolling basis subject to availability of funds.

Please direct any questions and/or submit LOIs to Katarzyna Karelus, Case CCC Clinical Research Office, katarzyna.karelus@case.edu, 216.844.4176.
