By cbrombosz on September 17, 2018 3:29 PM | Permalink

hanks to a five-year $20.3 million grant renewal from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), UNLV will continue to lead a health research network of 13 universities across the Mountain West region.

The Mountain West Clinical Translational Research Infrastructure Network (CTR-IN) began in 2013 and is designed to expand the research capacity of UNLV and partner institutions across seven states with a focus on improving the health of residents.

And it’s working. During the first four years of the program, more than $4.6 million was invested in 69 pilot grants throughout the network. These grants are designed as catalysts to help researchers lay the groundwork for larger, independent grant proposals. To date, more than $37 million has been secured through 27 new awards based on initial CTR-IN pilot grants – which amounts to nearly $8 for every $1 invested.

Among the program’s highlights:
