New Hub Guide


We are delighted to have your hub on board as a CTSA Program institution. One of the objectives of the program is to promote collaboration and communication to address translational challenges that no one team can overcome in isolation. We hope our role as the program’s coordinating center will help encourage that.

Below is a list of actions that will help you become familiarized with our site and the resources available to your hub through CLIC. A PDF copy of our On-Boarding document can be requested. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please reach out to us.
