IOM releases report on the CTSA Program at NIH

iom_logoThe Institute of Medicine has released a report, The CTSA Program at NIH:  Opportunities for Advancing Clinical and Translational Research, evaluating the NIH’s Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) program.  The IOM committee finds that “the CTSA program is contributing significantly to advancing clinical and translational research, and recommends a number of revisions that could make the program more efficient and effective and could ensure future successes. If enacted, these changes would help establish the CTSA Program as the national leader for advancing innovative and transformative clinical and translational research.” The recommendations include updating the program’s leadership structure, mission and goals.

A brief of the full report can be found on the website of the Institute of Medicine.

The pre-publication report, can be accessed through the library’s catalog.

The CTSA program is administered by the NIH’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).
