About the CTSA Consortium
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 clinical and translational research. 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.
In 2013, the CTSA Consortium expanded to 62 medical research institutions located throughout the nation, linking them together to energize the discipline of clinical and translational science. The CTSA Consortium is funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Working Together, Sharing a Vision
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.
