Supplemental Technology Award Review System (STARS)

For CCR Investigators Only

OSTR offers two distinct supplemental funding mechanisms for CCR PI’s to request additional funds for technologies and research services requiring exceptional costs. Eligible expenses include services from Cores and outside vendors.  A third program (STEP) offers funding for training in advanced technologies to CCR Staff Scientists and Staff Clinicians.

Effective May 8, 2024, STARSseq funding is no longer available. PIs with exceptional NGS costs can continue to utilize “Large” STARS to request additional funding. However, STARS proposals for these needs must be approved for funding before work can commence.
