In 2006, Duke received one of the first Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the National Institutes of Health. The NIH renewed this award for five more years in 2013.
As a CTSA award recipient, Duke is part of a consortium that includes more than 60 institutions across the country. The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), the newest of 27 Institutes and Centers at the National Institutes of Health, oversees the work of this consortium.
The Duke Translational Medicine Institute manages the CTSA grant, which helps Duke build infrastructure that supports a culture of continuous learning and innovative discovery. Examples of what we do include:
Managing programs that provide common resources and services to improve the quality, safety, efficiency, cost-effectiveness and impact of clinical and translational research.
Building the clinical and translational research workforce, and
Creating an academic research home that stimulates and ensures high-quality innovation and discovery in translational medicine.
We are transforming medicine. Will you join us?
