Our Mission to the CTSA Program

The mission of the Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research is to advance discoveries, knowledge, and innovation to improve human health across the lifespan for diverse populations in upper Manhattan and around the world. By mobilizing and connecting Columbia University’s researchers, we aim to create a seamless integration of community and academic partnerships. Our commitment to train a multi-faceted workforce, provide vital resources to researchers, and improve the efficiency of research processes, promotes the collaborative team science framework needed to translate research discoveries into effective interventions that address current and future health concerns.

Optional Core

Precision Medicine Resource and Translational Therapeutics Accelerator
The Precision Medicine Resource (PMR) supports both discovery and implementation science and heavily utilizes interdisciplinary input from basic science researchers, clinicians from all specialties, laboratory medicine scientists, human geneticists, systems biologists, biomedical informaticians and mathematicians, health information technology experts, health educators, and policy makers. Each year PMR funds pilot awards and fellowships, and also hosts the "Advances in Precision Medicine" seminar series and special guest lectures, in addition to offering consultations and other services. The Translational Therapeutics Accelerator (TRx) is designed to leverage Columbia’s proficiency in drug discovery and provide access to entrepreneurs and the pharmaceutical industry, with the goal of advancing novel therapeutics from the lab towards the path of commercialization and clinical implementation. A key goal of this program is to accelerate translation of novel medical discoveries from the lab to the clinic by positioning the technology for commercialization.
