Grant Project Period Length: 2 years

This funding opportunity supports biosample collection within the CARRA network to advance CARRA translational research. The goal is to collect biosamples from patients enrolled in the CARRA Registry, to be used by CARRA investigators for future hypothesis-based research.

  • This mechanism funds the collection of biosamples at CARRA Registry sites utilizing the CARRA Registry biosample consent form and standard collection kits.
  • Funds will be used to pay for biosample collection tubes/kits and shipping, CARRA Biobank fees, CARRA Registry site payments for biosample collections, DCRI support, and CARRA administrative support needed to manage internal budgets and make payments.
  • Please note that investigator(s) must contact TRTC Chairs, Lauren Henderson and Grant Schulert, to review the proposed project and receive a Letter of Support signed by TRTC.   
  • Additional details can be found on the CARRA website
