Research at NCATS

NCATS research projects and initiatives focus on addressing scientific and technical challenges to reduce, remove, or bypass bottlenecks in the development of new treatments and tests that will ultimately improve human health.  The Center studies translation on a system-wide level to accelerate the development of interventions for more than one disease.

Through its research initiatives, NCATS develops new approaches, technologies, resources, and models; demonstrates their usefullness in a specific disease or case study; and disseminates the data, analyses the methods to the larger scientific community.

NIH-NASA Biomedical Research Activities

NIH and NASA are exploring how biomedical research can address the challenges of deep space exploration and benefit human health in space and on Earth.
