With support of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program was launched in 2006 and has expanded to over 50 academic medical institutions across the country.
Each component of the CTSA program is crucial in supporting our mission: Accelerating Discoveries Toward Better Health. Working together, we can help shape the future of healthcare.
The CTSA offers something for everyone.
- Researchers: access tools, resources, and collaborative academic partnerships
- Trainees: find extensive educational materials and resources
- Volunteers: learn about participating in research
The CTSA Consortium links together medical research institutions throughout the nation to energize the discipline of clinical and translational science. The Consortium is funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The program aims to improve human health by transforming the research and training environment to enhance the efficiency and quality of clinical and translational research.
