The NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program is a national consortium funded by the National Institutes for Health designed to transform how clinical and translational research is conducted at academic health centers across the United States. Ultimately, this consortium will enable researchers to provide new treatments more efficiently and quickly to patients. Currently, the consortium includes 38 academic health centers located throughout the country. When fully implemented in 2012, the NIH anticipates the consortium will comprise about 60 institutions.
“Through collaboration and leadership, these sites are serving as discovery engines that can rapidly translate research into prevention strategies and clinical treatments for the people who need them,�? said Elias Zerhouni, M.D., director of the National Institutes of Health. “The CTSA consortium also represents our investment in the future as it prepares the next generation of clinical researchers to meet tomorrow’s health care challenges.�?
