Empire Clinical Research Investigator Program (ECRIP)

The Empire Clinical Research Investigator Program (ECRIP) has been revised for 2014 and the New York State Department of Health (DOH) is now accepting project abstracts. This year, up to $8.6 million in first-year funding for these two year awards is available to be distributed to teaching hospitals and GME consortia that train physicians as clinical researchers in order to advance biomedical research in New York. This redesigned program will continue Individual physician research awards and provide a new category of larger Center awards to make NYS teaching hospitals more competitive for federal funding.
