NIH encourages applications for institutional clinical and translational science awards (CTSAs).
This program announcement is an NIH Roadmap Initiative. The NIH Roadmap is an innovative approach to accelerate fundamental discovery and translate that knowledge into effective prevention strategies and new treatments. All NIH institutes and centers participate in Roadmap Initiatives.
Clinical and translational science is critical to the success of the NIH mission. The CTSA initiative assists institutions in creating integrated academic homes for clinical and translational science that have the resources to train multi- and inter-disciplinary investigators and research teams via access to innovative research tools and information technologies that apply new knowledge and techniques to patient care. CTSAs will attract basic, translational, and clinical investigators; community clinicians; clinical practices; networks; professional societies; and industry to develop new professional interactions, programs, and research projects.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Anthony Hayward, Division of Clinical Research Resources, National Center for Research Resources (NCRR); telephone: 301-435-0790; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
