Harvard Medical School receives major NIH grant for galvanizing translational science
Date:5/29/2008

BOSTON, Mass. (May 29, 2008)Harvard Medical School has been awarded a five-year Clinical and Translational Science Award from the National Institutes of Health to launch a center that will transform patient-oriented medical research at the School and create an unprecedented level of unity and communication across the Universitys disparate schools and affiliated medical centers. With this award, Harvard will join a network of Clinical and Translational Science Centers (CTSCs) based at academic medical centers around the country.

Harvard is one of 14 institutions to receive a 2008 CTSC grant. The total amount for all 14 institutions is $533 million over five years. Harvard will receive $23.5 million per year for five years. In addition, the Medical School, University, and affiliated hospitals have joined together to contribute an additional $15 million to the center.

The Harvard CTSC will be co-directed by Lee Nadler, the Virginia and D.K. Ludwig professor of medicine at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and HMS, and Steven Freedman, HMS associate professor of medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

This is an extraordinary moment for our University, Harvard Medical School, and all of the hospitals and institutes that make up the Harvard Medical community, Jeffrey Flier, dean for the Faculty of Medicine, said in an HMS-wide e-mail. The CTSA application required an unprecedented level of collaboration among faculty and staff across our community, as well as a commitment to a broad and compelling vision of clinical and translational research at Harvard.

Flier was instrumental in bringing together leaders from Harvard and its affiliated institutions to plan and design the center. It's a pan-Harvard effort to bring people to resourcesand people to peopleto solve problems of human health and to lower current barriers to collaboration, said Freedman. The design of the CTSC has required an unprecedented partnership bet
