NCATS Funding Opportunity: CTSA Program Coordination Center


NCATS is committing up to $4 million in fiscal year 2017 to fund a coordination center to support Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program activities. The CTSA Program supports an innovative national network of medical research institutions — called “hubs” — that work together to improve the translational research process to get more treatments to more patients more quickly. CTSA Program hubs collaborate locally and regionally to catalyze innovation in training, research tools and processes. The coordination center will facilitate development, testing and implementation of innovative approaches to: Collect and manage data to gauge and improve the impact of CTSA Program … Continue reading
