Established in 2008, Harvard Catalyst | The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center is dedicated to improving human health by enabling collaboration and providing tools, training, and technologies to clinical and translational investigators. As a shared enterprise of Harvard University, Harvard Catalyst resources are made freely available to all Harvard faculty and trainees, regardless of institutional affiliation or academic degree.
Harvard Catalyst is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program (grant 1UL1 TR001102-01), and by contributions from Harvard University, Harvard Medical School, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children's Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Massachusetts General Hospital. This CTSA is part of a network of over 60 centers across the US dedicated to advancing C/T research.
Harvard Catalyst works with Harvard schools and the academic healthcare centers (hospitals) to build and grow an environment where discoveries are rapidly and efficiently translated to improve human health. We catalyze research across all clinical and translational domains by providing investigators with opportunities such as pilot funding, with free resources such as biostatistics consultations, with educational programs such as the Clinical and Translational (C/T) Research Academy and over a dozen courses, and with a range of web tools that assist in data collection and team collaboration efforts.
