Steering Committee

The NCATS CTSA Program Steering committee provides leadership for sharing of policies, practices and resources, and discussion of opportunities, impediments, joint agreement on broad issues impeding clinical research and other appropriate topics. The Committee will identify and recommend best practices and policies to advance clinical and translational research as a discipline and facilitate collaboration and sharing among CTSA Program and non-CTSA Program institutions, and with partners in clinical and translational research (e.g., industry, laboratories, hospitals). For more information on Steering Committee Roles & Responsibilities, please view the Steering Committee Roles & Responsibilities document. (Please note that this is a living document and is subject to change.)

Steering Committee Pods

The pods were created to facilitate bidirectional communication among members of our large and distributed network, ensuring that all CTSA Program PIs would be informed of discussion points and action items from executive session SC calls, and conversely that all PIs would have a mechanism to raise issues for the Steering Committee to consider.
