Additional Information on Eligibility
Domestic institutions including universities, academic health centers, or other research organizations conducting translational and clinical research are eligible, with the following requirements. Because the Institutional CTSA program is focused on the development of a rigorous and robust academic discipline of clinical and translational science, the applicant institution(s) must include a graduate school accredited to award higher degrees in clinical research. Potential applicants and their affiliates without higher-degree awarding authority should consider applying for a CTSA Planning Grant (RFA-RM-06-001). Examples of acceptable higher degrees include M.S. and Ph. D. in topics such as Clinical Research, Public Health, Pharmacology, Nursing and Epidemiology. Partnerships among schools of medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, osteopathy, public health, engineering and other clinically-related institutions are strongly encouraged, as is the inclusion of other relevant cli! nical research entities and organizations. The CTSA institution(s) is expected to form an integrated institutional home that includes faculty committed to developing the discipline of clinical and translational science that will transcend multiple departments, schools, clinical and research institutes and hospitals. Therefore, an institution may submit, or be part of, only a single application in response to this RFA. Multiple applications from different divisions, faculties, centers, schools, etc. of the same university or medical school will be returned without further consideration by the NIH. Institutions whose faculties hold positions at two or more universities, medical, or osteopathic schools, etc. can be part of only a single application at a time. Foreign institutions and foreign components of applications are not allowed. Applications from ineligible institutions will not be reviewed. The application must include clear detailed evidence of significant institutiona! l commitment.
- Purpose: Growing barriers between clinical and basic research, along with the ever increasing complexities involved in conducting clinical research, are making it more difficult to translate new knowledge to the clinic -- and back again to the bench. These challenges are limiting professional interest in the field and hampering the clinical research enterprise at a time when it should be expanding. - The purpose of this initiative is to assist institutions to forge a uniquely transformative, novel, and integrative academic home for Clinical and Translational Science that has the consolidated resources to: 1) captivate, advance, and nurture a cadre of well-trained multi- and inter-disciplinary investigators and research teams; 2) create an incubator for innovative research tools and information technologies; and 3) synergize multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary clinical and translational research and researchers to catalyze the application of new knowledge and techniques to clinical practice at the front lines of patient care.
