The NJ ACTS Pilot Program offers one-year pilot grants to foster collaborative research among faculty at Princeton University, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and Rutgers University. It supports team research to promote novel approaches and methodologies in translational medicine and science, to foster interdisciplinary research to generate and/or test novel hypotheses, create partnerships that leverage in-kind partner support and to support high-risk/high-reward innovative projects. These projects are expected to provide key preliminary data for sustained extramural funding. View a list of all NJ ACTS Pilot Grants awarded.
