Concept Clearances

Concept Clearances

Concepts describe the basic purpose, scope and objectives of proposed initiatives and represent an early planning stage for potential NCATS activities. Concepts are discussed with the NCATS Advisory Council and Cures Acceleration Network (CAN) Review Board and through other public venues. Council approval of a concept does not guarantee it will become an initiative. That decision is made based on scientific and programmatic priorities and the availability of funds.
