Research Network Opportunities, Collaborative Awards

The goal of this page is to assist the CTSA Network with identifying collaborators and projects of interest from other CTSA Hubs and broader external partners from academia, industry, government agencies, foundations, patient groups and other organizations. CLIC will provide a range of mechanisms to support both CTSA hub and external collaborations, including: supporting cross-network team synergy manuscripts on topics of joint interest, promoting un-meetings as self-organizing events to bring together potential partners, and developing mechanisms to support a robust training network. As an initial example, NCATS has supported several initiatives and launched Collaborative Innovation Awards designed to stimulate team-based research collaborations across the CTSA network. Through a variety of projects, the CTSA hubs strive to leverage expertise across institutions to overcome translational science roadblocks. These funded projects and dissemination of their results may provide additional opportunities for collaboration across CTSA hubs and with external partners.
