CTSA Funding Information
The CTSA program provides critical resources and support needed to strengthen the entire spectrum of our nation's clinical and translational research enterprise. Funded institutions provide core resources, essential mentoring and training, and opportunities to develop innovative approaches and technologies designed to re-engineer existing capabilities. Program support also fosters collaborations to improve the quality, safety, efficiency and speed of clinical and translational research.
There are no open CTSA funding opportunities at this time. Information about future opportunities will appear on this page.
NCATS intends to publish several CTSA solicitations in spring 2015 for Trial Innovation Centers (NOT-TR-15-001), Recruitment Innovation Centers (NOT-TR-15-003), Pre-applications for Collaborative Innovation Awards (NOT-TR-15-005) and Collaborative Innovation Awards (NOT-TR-15-006).
