Just-In-Time Funding Program through the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences

The Just-In-Time (JIT) Core Usage Funding Program is designed to provide quick access to funding to use any of the JIT Cores, which includes Center for Health Economics & Policy, for research advancing medical knowledge that can improve human health.

The program provides support for investigators in obtaining final data that:

  1. Will be used for development of a clinical/translational proposal to be submitted for extramural funding; and/or
  2. Will lead to a concrete improvement in patient care (QA/QI) at Barnes-Jewish Hospital or St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Details are required in the application.

Refer to the Program Overview (pdf) for specifics, including funding limits and deadlines.

The JIT Core Usage Funding Program is supported by the Washington University Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences, Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Hope Center, and Siteman Cancer Center.
