National CTSA Consortium

With support of the National Institute of Health (NIH), the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program was launched in 2006. Each component of the CTSA program is crucial in supporting our mission: Accelerating Discoveries Toward Better Health. Working together, we can help shape the future of healthcare.

The CTSA program creates a definable academic home for clinical and translational research.CTSA institutions work to transform the local, regional, and national environment to increase the efficiency and speed of clinical and translational research across the country.

In 2012, the CTSA Consortium expanded to approximately 60 medical research institutions (see Figure 1 below) located throughout the nation, linking them together to energize the discipline of clinical and translational science. The CTSA Consortium is funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Learn more.
