The National Institute of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) has announced awards of more than $79 million in fiscal year 2013 funding to support 15 Institutional Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs). The CTSA program catalyzes improvements across the entire spectrum of translational research through efforts to broadly develop, demonstrate, and disseminate health interventions. It serves as a connector to engage key partners including other NIH institutes and centers, patient groups, communities, health care providers, industry, and regulatory organizations.
