Internal Research Funding Schemes
The primary objective of the Ochsner Translational Medicine Research Initiative (OTMRI) is to promote translational medicine research by Ochsner physicians. The program will provide seed funds to initiate or continue translational research projects focusing on clinical areas of interest to the institution.
The primary objectives of the Clinical Research & Innovation Support Program (CRISP) is to promote high quality, investigator-initiated, clinical research at Ochsner and support investigators in their effort to obtain extramural funding for their research program. CRISP will provide, for a limited period, seed funds to initiate (or continue) research projects that 1) focus on clinical areas of interest to the institution, 2) have a high potential to impact medical practice and, 3) have a high potential to attract external funding.
The UQ-Ochsner Seed Fund for Collaborative Research has been established as an internal grant scheme to help foster transdisciplinary research between eligible investigators based in the Ochsner Clinical School (OCS) and those based in other Schools, research Institutes and Centres of the University of Queensland.
The Physician Research Council is pleased to announce the inauguration of the Research Mentor of the Year Awards as a way of recognizing the important role physicians and scientists play in the development of future physician-researchers, in the advancement of Ochsner’s mission of research and education, and, ultimately, in the optimal care of our patients.
This postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of Queensland-Ochsner Clinical School provides a unique opportunity for recent, selected, doctoral degree recipients to continue to remain engaged in translational, clinical, and health services research while they await the start of their residency program.
The Department of Research and the Ochsner Research Council are pleased to announce Ochsner’s second annual Award for Outstanding Research by Trainees. This program will provide five awards in each of three categories of trainees: medical students, residents and fellows. The awards cover the cost of abstract submission and registration to attend and present at the Annual Meeting of the Southern Society for Clinical Investigation (SSCI).
