Leaders at the Johnson Center for Innovation and Translational Research, which is part of the Indiana University Innovation and Commercialization Office, have announced an April 15 deadline for IU Bloomington researchers to submit proof-of-concept projects for the sixth annual Translational Research Pilot Grant program.

Applications must be submitted electronically to ico@iu.edu. They will be assessed for their scientific merit, potential to significantly enhance the commercial development of the discovery and potential to create new intellectual property. More information about the proposal requirements is online.

Funding will be available June 1.

Lists of the grant recipients in the 2015 cohort, 2016 cohort, 2017 cohort, 2018 cohort and 2019 cohort are available online.
