Pilot and Feasibility

If awarded, funding will not be released unless appropriate IRB and ARC approvals have been submitted. Please note: UCLA IRB approval will be required if the applications include a human studies component. If studies are conducted at the West Los Angeles  VA, UCLA IRB approval for Human Studies involved in research must be submitted to the program coordinator prior to the release of funds.  UCLA IRB and ARC approval notices must cite the CURE: DDRC and CTSI funding sources.

Every publication reporting data obtained during the period of the PFS/CTSI funding or later publications that benefitted from studies partly supported by the PFS/CTSI awards must cite both CURE:DDRC and CTSI as follows:
