Funding Available for Pediatric Health Innovations
Posted August 13, 2013 | Atlanta, GA
If you believe you’ve conceived the next world-changing pediatric health device, a new campus opportunity could bring your idea to reality.
Quick Wins is a funding program designed to facilitate rapid solutions to unmet clinical and business needs at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA). Part of a relationship between CHOA and Georgia Tech, the program brings together a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, researchers and administrators from both institutions who meet monthly to review project proposals and disperse funds from a $20 million allowance.
To qualify for consideration, Quick Wins proposals must address a project that can deliver a workable solution into the hands of a clinician or team within 18 months from the receipt of funds and project start. Also, the proposing team must include individuals from both CHOA and Georgia Tech. Proposals should be submitted by the 15th of the month to be reviewed at that month’s meeting. Proposal forms are available at pediatriconnect.gtri.gatech.edu/grants.
For those who have ideas but need teammates, a related resource, PediatriConnect, can help. Recently launched, this venture brings together researchers at CHOA, Georgia Tech and Emory University and is designed to facilitate collaboration, interaction, and communication to make a difference in the health and care of children. Those interested in finding collaborators can register online at pediatriconnect.gtri.gatech.edu.
