PCORI Seeks Applications to Fund $120 Million in Comparative Clinical Effectiveness Research in 2012

Posted by on May 24th, 2012 Posted in: Translational Science


Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) released its first primary research funding announcements to support comparative clinical effectiveness research that will give patients and those who care for them the ability to make better-informed health care decisions. PCORI will award $120 million this year for innovative projects that effectively incorporate patients and stakeholders in research teams and address the areas of focus of PCORI’s National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda. PCORI previously announced the approval of 50 Pilot Project Program awards, totaling $30 million over two years, to researchers in 24 states and the District of Columbia. Four funding announcements, involving up to $96 million in funding, correspond to the first four areas of focus outlined in PCORI’s National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda:

  • Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options – for projects that address critical decisions that patients, their caregivers and clinicians face with too little information
  • Improving Healthcare Systems – for projects that address critical decisions that face health care systems, the patients and caregivers who rely on them, and the clinicians who work within them
  • Communication and Dissemination – for projects that address critical elements in the communication and dissemination process among patients, their caregivers and clinicians
  • Addressing Disparities – for projects that will inform the choice of strategies to eliminate disparities

A fifth PCORI Funding Announcement (PFA) on Accelerating Patient-Centered and Methodological Research, involving up to $24 million in funding, will be issued during the summer. All application materials can be downloaded from the “Funding Opportunities” section of PCORI’s website. The deadline for Letters of Intent is June 15, 2012.
