NIH expands national consortium dedicated to transforming clinical and translational research
Date:5/29/2008

  • creating best practices to improve clinical research informatics tools to analyze research data and manage clinical trials;

  • designating technologies for marketing and licensing purposes that will increase global access to research tools; and

  • forging new partnerships with private and public health care organizations, including pharmaceutical companies, the Veterans Administration hospitals, health maintenance organizations, as well as state health agencies.

The CTSA initiative grew out of the NIH commitment to re-engineer the clinical research enterprise, one of the key objectives of the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research. Most of the funding will come from terminating grants to General Clinical Research Centers, supplemented by NIH Roadmap funds. In 2012, when the program is fully implemented, approximately 60 CTSAs will be connected with an annual budget of $500 million.

A fourth funding opportunity announcement for CTSAs is available, calling for the next round of applications to be submitted by June 17, 2008, with the awards expected in March 2009. More information about this funding announcement can be found at www.ncrr.nih.gov/crfunding. For more information about the CTSA program, visit www.ncrr.nih.gov/crctsa.
