The CTSA Program provides critical resources and support needed to strengthen the entire spectrum of our nation’s clinical and translational research enterprise. CTSA Program hubs provide core resources, essential mentoring and training and opportunities to develop innovative approaches and technologies designed to re-engineer existing capabilities. Program support also fosters collaborations to improve the quality, safety, efficiency and speed of clinical and translational research.

Funded Activities Under the CTSA Program

As part of its annual fiscal year appropriation, NCATS receives funds to support the programs, initiatives and activities of the CTSA Program. Each CTSA-funded institution provides core resources, subject-matter expertise, and training and educational opportunities to support clinical and translational science. Together, these institutions work collaboratively, as part of the CTSA national network, to address significant challenges and opportunities to advance biomedical research into health solutions. With the demonstrated success and impact of the CTSA Program, NCATS has leveraged the expertise and resources of CTSA Program, resulting in additional funding from sources beyond NCATS’ appropriation. These other funds do not offset the existing NCATS appropriated funds and do not add to the NCATS annual base funding of the program.
