Penn State receives $27.3 million NIH grant
Date:6/14/2011

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded Penn State, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, and Penn State College of Medicine a $27.3 million, five-year grant designed to accelerate the translation of scientific discovery into methods for improving public health.

This competitive Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) will support the Penn State Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), a collaboration of many Penn State colleges and institutes, along with community and industry partners, devoted to using their research and outreach expertise to improve the health of Pennsylvanians.

The NIH announced today (June 14) that Penn State is among five organizations selected in this final round of initial awards of the CTSA program, which provides support to organizations with the demonstrated commitment and expertise necessary to deliver on the promise of improved health, and one of only three in Pennsylvania to receive a CTSA since the program's inception in 2006. The CTSA grant funding started on June 1 and runs through February 2016.

The CTSA program from the NIH's National Center for Research Resources supports a national consortium of medical research institutions designed to transform how biomedical research is conducted. Its goals are to speed the translation of laboratory discoveries into treatments for patients, to engage communities in clinical research efforts, and to train a new generation of clinical and translational researchers.

"Selection as one of the CTSA awardees is both a strong vote of confidence in the outstanding research being done at Penn State and an investment in the potential life-saving treatments and therapies that can come from collaboration across campuses and fields of expertise," said Penn State President Graham B. Spanier. "As part of our legacy of service to Pennsylvania and beyond, Penn State is ready to identify solutions for better health."
