January 5, 2022

The CTSI BERD Program is seeking applications for pilot funding for projects which would lead to a publication describing a methodological development.


Examples include, but are not limited to, development of a new statistical technique to analyze a particular kind of data, qualitative methods (e.g., refined cognitive interviews), research designs, techniques for analyzing large data, and novel technologies (e.g., mobile data collection, eye-tracking, virtual reality-based assessments). The scope of this RFA also includes the novel application of existing methods into a new area of research.

These awards are open to all faculty with a rank of instructor or higher across the Atrium Health Enterprise including Atrium Health, Atrium Health Navicent, and Wake Forest Baptist Health, including Wake Forest School of Medicine. Wake Forest University faculty and all CTSI affiliated institutions with a Wake Forest co-investigator are also invited to apply.
