The 2018 SYNERGY Translational Pilot Grant Program
Dartmouth SYNERGY Clinical and Translational Science Institute announces the availability of grant funding for 2018 SYNERGY Pilot Awards
The SYNERGY Translational Pilot Program funds innovative interdisciplinary research proposals that have clear potential for translation into patient-oriented care and improved population health. The goal is to facilitate collaborative translational research studies within all Dartmouth institutions and affiliated health centers, and to accelerate the process of clinical and translational research.
Prospective candidates must submit Letters of Intent (LOI) by November 15, 2017.
The contact PI must have a Dartmouth faculty appointment at the rank of instructor, assistant professor or associate professor. (N.B.: full professors and research scientists are not eligible for contact PI designation, but may apply as Co-PI).
For full information, see the RFA and LOI forms below:

2016 SYNERGY Pilot Grant Awards
We are proud to extend congratulations to the 2016 SYNERGY Translational Pilot Grant awardees. Following a review of 29 letters of intent, SYNERGY invited 16 full applications from which six awardees were selected; two of the six awards are co-funded with the Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC). Aligning with SYNERGY’s mission of fostering collaborative interactions between basic, translational, and health services researchers, the awardees come from diverse Dartmouth schools and departments:
We extend our sincere thanks to the 2016 SYNERGY Translational Pilot Application Review Committee for their hard work during the review process to select these Pilot Awardees.
Since 2008 the SYNERGY Translational Pilot Program has funded 62 pilot projects. The RFAs have been designed to promote translational research activity in specific areas, including community partnerships, comparative effectiveness research, and novel methodologies.
