We created a new video and worked with Translation Together on a consensus paper to raise awareness of translational science and present the skills translational scientists use to transform medical discoveries into treatments and cures.July E-Newsletter Now Available
People with chronically itchy skin, take heart. NCATS researchers report that blocking a receptor on the surface of spinal cord neurons may help relieve the constant need to scratch. The study appeared online in Science Translational Medicine.
A research framework that enables recruiting of hospitalized patients for a wide range of studies helps identify optimal care approaches during and after hospital stays. Undergraduate students learn about clinical research and are integral to recruitment.
NCATS-supported researchers used machine-learning to develop an innovative device that detects dangerous internal bleeding and monitors a patient’s response to blood loss. The monitor helps medical staff quickly identify appropriate treatment.
NCATS-supported researchers sent miniaturized tissue chip systems to the International Space Station on May 4. Four projects using the systems will support the study of aging-related conditions and potential treatments for them.
Three NCATS teams will begin projects emphasizing happiness as an essential component of health, a system to coordinate clinical and translational science best practices, and optimization of NCATS’ Genetic and Rare Diseases (GARD) Information Center.
Scientists in NCATS’ Assay Development and Screening Technology program are developing new methods for screening small molecules that could help researchers test possible drugs and develop new treatments for many diseases.
Staff who work on clinical studies can improve their skills with high-quality training materials on the DIAMOND portal. The goal of the CTSA Program-supported DIAMOND project is to create well-run clinical trials through well-trained staff.
On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, NCATS Director Christopher P. Austin, M.D., shares his insights about exploring biological and chemical space—and why the implications of these explorations are just as important as those of outer space.

Taking Stock and Action in the Opioid Crisis
In February, NCATS co-hosted a two-day symposium for pain and addiction researchers as part of the NIH HEAL (Helping to End Addiction Long-termSM) Initiative. Learn more about taking stock and action in the opioid crisis.
