Deadline Looms for New PCORI Grant Applications


Wednesday the Patient-Centered Outcomes Institute announced the availability of up to $76 million in new grant money for comparative effectiveness research projects.  But the deadline for prospective applicants to submit letters of intent is only a month away:  September 5.

The announcement was accompanied by the publication of a three-and-a-half page blog post by PCORI Chief Science Officer Bryan Luce, with additional information about the grants and the grant process, which has changed since last time around.  This time letters of intent are expected to be “competitive.”  If they don’t measure up in terms of responsiveness and programmatic fit, PCORI won’t invite a full application.

The areas of research identified in the announcement are assessment of prevention, diagnosis and treatment options (APDTO), improving healthcare systems (HIS), communication and dissemination research (CDR), assessing disparities and accelerating patient-centered outcomes research and methodological research.
