Spectrum Grants Open to all Stanford faculty and Instructors. Graduate students, clinical and non-clinical postdoctoral scholars are encouraged to apply with the leadership of a Stanford-affiliated, PI-eligible faculty mentor. The Stanford CTSA/Spectrum Pilot Grant Program has two major goals: 1) to stimulate innovative clinical and translational research and 2) to encourage collaborative, transdisciplinary work. The primary expectation is that these early-stage translational projects will lead to additional research, external support, information dissemination and most important, will develop into longer-term, comprehensive projects. While we encourage transdisciplinary collaborations, it is not a requirement for funding.
