A variety of CTSA Program Groups were established to execute the recommendations of the NCATS Advisory Council Working Group on the IOM Report on the CTSA Program.
Interested parties are required to propose and deliver well-defined projects or deliverables that fill identified translational gaps and/or further the CTSA Program objectives in high priority areas in clinical and translational science. Based upon availability, there will be three (3) application submission rounds annually.
A calendar is available with all CTSA Program Group meeting information
The Administrators serve as key points of contact between program leadership and directors, and NCATS personnel. This group focuses on best practices and issues related to the efficient conduct of the CTSA Program
The CTSA Program Group page contains all information related to the CTSA Program Webinar, which is a monthly meeting between the CTSA Program members and NCATS Leadership
The Evaluators encourage cutting edge research on evaluation methods and processes relevant to the evaluation and management of translational science.
KL2 awards support mentored research career development for clinical investigators who have recently completed professional training and who are commencing basic, translational and/or clinical research
TL1 awards support students seeking a practical introduction to clinical and translational research. The CTSA Program hub selects TL1 candidates and provides full-time research training support for predoctoral candidates as well as postdoctoral fellows
Focuses on modern informatics methodologies and techniques to support clinical and translational science, community engagement and enhance training
Helps ensure translational science is integrated across its multiple phases and disciplines within complex populations and across the individual lifespan
The work of this WG will, through a literature review and survey of CTSA Program community engagement core staff, document the barriers and facilitators of community engaged research.
The purpose of this Working Group was to develop guidelines for appropriate financial compensation for community stakeholders who participate in DTFs and/or DTF Workgroups.
