Presentation Transcript
impetus for the ctsa program
Impetus for the CTSA Program

To ensure new discoveries lead to improved public health, clinical science must evolve to better:

  • Implement biomedical discoveries.
  • Develop, test, and bring new prevention strategies into medical practice more rapidly.
  • Catalyze change - lower barriers between disciplines. 
  • Encourage creative and innovative approaches.
sharing a common vision
Sharing a Common Vision

Team Science

Working together as a national consortium, CTSA institutions share a common vision to improve human health by transforming the research and training environment to enhance the efficiency and quality of clinical and translational research.



CTSA Philosophy


Breaking Down Institutional Barriers


transformative of an academic culture to support the development of a discipline of clinical and translational science

  • innovative by supporting new teams and research methodologies to apply to heath research opportunities
  • inclusiveby engaging faculty, staff and students from the 7 Health Sciences Colleges and the University community who share a common vision about clinical and translational science
  • responsiveto needs and emerging priorities
  • transparentin factors considered in resource and activity allocation
