  • Pilot Project LOIs Propose Cancer-Related Studies
    In its first year of accepting grant requests, the Pilot Project Program of the Northern New England Clinical & Translational Research Network received nearly 60 Letters of Intent (LOIs) for potential study funding.  A handful in each of the first two rounds highlighted cancer-related aims. Due to limited funding, only the most fully-developed programs were approved, while others were encouraged to further develop and resubmit in future rounds.
  • Round 1 Pilot Project Awardees Announced
    After careful peer review of 34 applications submitted in November 2017, we are pleased to announce the five Round 1 Northern New England Clinical & Translational Research Network pilot project award winners.
