Transforming Clinical & Translational Research

Turning scientific discoveries into clinical advances often is an inefficient process due to insufficient resources and too few specially trained researchers. NCATS’ CTSA Program supports an innovative national network of medical research institutions — called “hubs” — that work together to improve the translational research process to get more treatments to more patients more quickly.

CTSA Program hubs collaborate locally, regionally and nationally, fostering innovation in training and research methodologies. NCATS continues to build on the strong foundation of the CTSA Program to tackle system-wide scientific and operational problems to make the clinical and translational research enterprise more efficient. Learn more about the CTSA Program.
