The primary goals of this program are to build capacity and infrastructure for translational research at U.S. Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) and to enhance their role in regional innovation ecosystems. In addition, this program seeks to effectively train graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in translational research, benefiting them across a range of career options. This solicitation seeks proposals that enable IHE-based teams to propose a blend of: 

  • activities that will help build and/or strengthen the institutional infrastructure to sustainably grow the institutional capacity for research translation in the short and long terms;
  • educational/training opportunities, especially for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, to become entrepreneurs and/or seek use-inspired and/or translational research-oriented careers in the public and/or private sectors; and
  • specific, translational research activities that offer immediate opportunities for transition to practice to create economic and/or societal impact. 

The funded teams will form a nationwide network of ‘ART Ambassadors’ who will champion the cause of translational research. This will be a limited submission opportunity; please see the limited submission website for internal competition dates when they are posted.
