By awarding grants for ideas that others would not fund, CIMIT ignites the drive to move an idea from the bench to the bedside.

CIMIT grants and awards support early stage, collaborative research projects for improving patient care, with emphasis on devices, procedures, diagnosis, and clinical systems. To be considered for a CIMIT Grant, a proposal must present a collaborative, multi-disciplinary plan of work that specifically advances the likelihood that a new concept will yield benefit in the healthcare setting. CIMIT values proposals by teams that reach across Consortium institutions and whose novel ideas may create technologies that can benefit several medical disciplines.

CIMIT awards grants to principal investigators on faculty at the CIMIT Consortium institutions. Projects may include team members from other academic institutions and collaborators from industry. CIMIT currently funds projects across its portfolio of programs, but remains open to any innovative use of technology to improve patient care.
