Healthcare Delivery Science Research Grants

While CHOP has a world class Research Institute, few of the studies conducted by CHOP investigators are designed to answer clinical and operational questions with the goal of immediately turning the knowledge gained into a new or revised approach to organizing and delivering clinical care at CHOP. In order to address this gap, in 2020 Clinical Futures, formerly named the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness (CPCE), The Possibilities Project, and the Center for Healthcare Quality and Analytics (CHQA) launched an internal research grant program focused on clinical impact.

We are currently seeking applications to this program. We anticipate funding 1-2 projects at a maximum of $50,000 each. Projects must be completed within an 18-month time frame. Applications are due by 4:00 pm April 3, 2023, and may be sent via email to Holly Burnside at
