Call for Proposals for Pfizer's Centers for Therapeutic Innovation Program

NCATS announces opportunity for NIH intramural researchers to submit proposals to collaborate with Pfizer’s Centers for Therapeutic Innovation (CTI).

Pfizer’s CTI program pairs NIH researchers with Pfizer resources to pursue scientific and medical advances through joint therapeutic development. The CTI model is the first NIH-wide biologics initiative with a pharmaceutical partner that NCATS coordinates on behalf of all NIH intramural researchers.

Goals include identifying biologic compounds with activity in a pathway or target of interest to both an NIH intramural researcher and to Pfizer, and moving the compounds into the clinic to test them.

Due Dates

Pre- proposals are due to the investigator’s NIH Institute or Center’s technology transfer office by Oct. 13, 2017.

Technology transfer staff must submit the pre-proposals by Oct. 20, 2017, via the Pfizer CTI submission portal.
