CHPS Junior Investigator Preliminary/Feasibility Grant Program (JIPGP)

The Center for Human Phenomic Science (CHPS) is accepting research proposals to be considered for the Junior Investigator Preliminary/Feasibility Grant Program (JIPGP).

The primary goal of the JIPGP is to encourage early-career investigators to develop research projects that will ultimately lead to extramural funding and to a career in clinical and/or translational research. The JIPGP awards are in partnership with the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (ITMAT), and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute.

The JIPGP awards are designed to allow junior faculty members and MD, PhD, and DMD Postdoctoral trainees to perform investigator-initiated, human-based, studies utilizing CHPS services. Projects should address CTSA themes of multidisciplinary research, translational research, and research across the age spectrum. The grants will be available at each institution effective July 1, 2024.

AWARD DATES:

  • Application Receipt Deadline: March 8, 2024, at Noon
  • Notification of Award (tentative): April 19, 2024
  • Funding Period: July 1, 2024 – June 30, 2025/6

Please download and save the attached full announcement for eligibility criteria, proposal instructions, and required documents (accessed by clicking on the paper clip within the PDF).

Please see the list of some of our past winners.

Grant Submissions – Pre-Award

To add CHPS to a research submission, we recommend that you reach out to the Directors of the Cores that you plan to use to discuss your research. Please contact the CHPS Administrative Staff to discuss the cost of CHPS services and other logistical issues.

To facilitate grant and IRB submissions, CHPS has developed standardized information that study teams can use.

If you would like a letter of support, email John Krall, Administrative Director, at least two weeks prior to the date you need the letter. Include the title of your project, the aims/objectives, hypothesis, funding source/grant type and a detailed list of CHPS services you will requesting. Please supply the budget developed by CTFM.

Pricing requests for CHPS services are submitted through SIFTER when CHPS pricing is required for an eSPA submission. SIFTER, which resides within eIRB, serves as a centralized repository for study start-up information required to support various processes associated with OnCore. For more detailed information, visit Facilitate Clinical Research Study Budget Plan.

If you plan to use CHPS at Penn, please reach out directly at the Penn Center for Human Phenomic Science.

CHPS may be able to waive some or all charges for services for peer-reviewed K and other mentored career development awards for junior faculty where at least 50% salary support is awarded to the Principal Investigator. Fee waivers for these studies will be for the duration of the award only. However, Principal Investigators may be charged fees for supplies. Waivers may be limited for large studies utilizing many CHPS services, if the magnitude of the request jeopardizes the availability of resources for other projects.

Mentored-Training Awards

For junior faculty on institutional K slots and post-doctoral fellows on institutional T32 slots or equivalent mentored-training awards, CHPS may be able to waive charges for nursing, biostatistics, and Informatics Core services. For additional Core requests, provide mentor's Other Support, including overlap with the trainee's project.

Career Development Award

If you are applying for a career development award, we recommend that you reach out to the directors of the Cores that you plan to use to discuss your research.

Please contact the CHPS Administrative Staff to discuss the cost of CHPS services and other logistical issues. To request a fee waiver, email John Krall, administrative director, at and include the title of your project, the aims/objectives, hypothesis, funding source/grant type and a detailed list of CHPS services you will requesting.

You are also required to obtain a Price Request through Clinical Trials Financial Management that lists all the CHPS services utilized by this project and their cost. Please provide a copy of the completed budget. Also, let us know if you would like a letter of support for your project. Once we receive the request and budget, CHPS leadership will review and determine if we are able to support the research.
