Transforming Clinical and Translational Research
CTSA-funded hubs aim to accelerate scientific discovery along the entire biomedical research spectrum, from basic science to patient studies to clinical practice, using an integrated approach. Information sharing at each stage of the process ensures that researchers are meeting community health needs and that progress in the clinic, in turn, informs work in the laboratory.
