PRICE-CTSI-IOA Pilot Project Awards
in Pain and Aging Research

The UF Pain Research & Intervention Center of Excellence (PRICE), the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and the Institute on Aging (IOA) are pleased to invite applications for pilot project awards of up to $25,000 each in support of pain and aging research. Projects must be completed within 18 months from notice of award. Applications are due May 31, 2016. It is anticipated that up to 5 awards will be made, depending on quality of submissions and budget availability.


The PRICE-CTSI-IOA pilot grants are being offered to support the growth of patient-oriented clinical research on the topic of pain and aging across UF’s broad range of scientific disciplines. It is expected that all research supported by this RFA will provide critical preliminary data to support extramural applications.


Applicants must be a UF faculty member or a UF trainee (residents, fellows, postdocs) at the time funds are awarded. Priority will be given to applications from trainees and early stage investigators.

Available Funding

A total of up to $100,000 is available for projects to be funded through this RFA. Awards cannot exceed $25,000. Matching funds from other sources are encouraged.
