The other institutions include Columbia University Medical Center, Mayo Clinic, Oregon Health & Sciences University, Rockefeller University, UC Davis, University of Pennsylvania, University of Pittsburgh, University of Rochester, and Yale University.

"These institutes were the pioneers in this program and are to be commended for the work they have done in bridging the traditional divides between laboratory research and medical practice," said Barbara Alving, MD, director of the NIH's National Center for Research Resources, which administers the CTSA program.

NIH will release a progress report on the program in August, highlighting research that has emerged from UCSF and other institutes in the CTSA consortium.
