Main Content:

Pitt CSD has a unique combination of internationally-recognized scientific and clinical strengths, active research partnerships with world-class experts in computational modeling, neuroimaging, engineering and data science, and close clinical partnerships with nationally-recognized health care providers. We have a diverse funding portfolio with support from federal sponsors such as NIH, NSF, DoD and non-federal sponsors (e.g., PCORI and foundation grants). Since 2019, we have received 27 federally-funded research awards and one non-federal contract totaling $15,519,435 in new awards.

Our active partnerships and grants enable us to provide hands-on training experiences relevant to each step in the preclinical-to-clinical translation process. We have has significant growth in external funding for predoctoral students and postdoctoral associates (e.g., NIH F31, F32, T32s) since 2019, totaling $469,301.
