Drawing from experience of the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research and extensive community input, the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs) program creates a definable academic home for the discipline of clinical and translational science at institutions across the country. CTSA institutions work to transform the local, regional, and national environment to increase the efficiency and speed of clinical and translational research across the country.
Sixty medical research institutions in thirty states and the District of Columbia are active members of the CTSA Consortium. These institutions are working together to speed the translation of research discovery into improved patient care. The CTSA consortium is funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The CTSA consortium aims to improve human health by transforming the research and training environment to enhance the efficiency and quality of clinical and translational research. For more information please visit the Consortium's website.
