Clinical and Translational Science Awards
ON THIS PAGE:
A national consortium, funded through Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs), is transforming how clinical and translational research is conducted, ultimately enabling researchers to provide new treatments more efficiently and quickly to patients.
Now comprising 38 academic health centers in 23 states (including 14 centers added in May 2008), the consortium ultimately will link about 60 institutions together to energize the discipline of clinical and translational science.
The consortium's Web site, CTSAweb.org, ensures broad access to CTSA resources, enhances communication, and encourages information sharing.
The new program draws on NIH's earlier initiatives to re-engineer the clinical research enterprise, one of the key objectives of the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research.
2009 Bench-to-Bedside Awards Program Expanding
The 2009 Bench-to-Bedside Awards program is expanding to enable extramural principal investigators with existing NIH grants (e.g., researchers at CTSA sites) to initiate proposals by seeking intramural partners at NIH to serve as the project leaders and points of contact. To identify an intramural collaborator, interested CTSA investigators should consult the NIH's database of all current intramural research. Research proposals can fall into one of seven categories: pharmacogenomics, behavioral and social sciences, rare diseases, AIDS, minority health and health disparities, women's health, and general projects.

Support for CTSA-Related Conferences and Scientific Meetings (R13/U13)
Requests for support for clinical and translation research related conferences, either as stand-alone activities or in conjunction with existing professional organizations' conferences or other events, may be made to NCRR's Division for Clinical Research Resources. The potential funding mechanisms for scientific conferences include R13 grants U13 cooperative agreements. Permission to submit an application must be requested no less than nine months before the proposed conference date. For conference planning guidance or programmatic assistance, please contact your NIH Steering Committee Liaison or CTSA Program Officer. For further information about NCRR support for R13/U13 opportunities related to clinical research, please contact Dr. Rosemarie Filart. READ MORE >>
