Get to know people in clinical departments (if you are not already in one). Get to know the chairs and other important people. Before you know it, they will be sending clinical fellows your way to do research with significant amounts of money. They may also ask you to contribute a project to a center or program project grant. I know this may come as a shocker, but clinical departments generally have more cash to play with. Personally, I am more than happy to train medical students, clinical fellows, and clinical faculty in my lab (sometimes on my dime). Finally, although I sometimes claim to do translational research, these people do it for real and have taught me a lot about clinical science.
