TCRSS provides junior and/or new investigators with funds to establish their programs of research in self-management interventions that are transdisciplinary in approach.
Pilot Study Eligibility: TCRSS Center Pilot Investigators
To be eligible for a Center pilot grant, an investigator must be:
- A nurse scientist who has not previously been a PI of a self-management study in the past or who is not currently funded by a DHHS-funded research grant (i.e., R01, R03, R15 or R21).
- A nurse scientist who has not previously been a PI of a self-management study in the past but who is funded through other mechanisms (e.g., R34, R41, R42, R43, R44, or K awards).
- An established nurse scientist who wishes to develop skills and expertise in conducting self-management research for persons with chronic illnesses, and for whom this area is a clear and distinct departure from her/his previous research work.
