Name of creator
Washington University established the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) to meet the intent of the national CTSA initiative, the Clinical and Translational Science Award program designed to increase the efficiency and speed of clinical and translational research on the local, regional and national levels.
By collaborating with a variety of existing resources and coordinating with the university's central administration to identify various ways to create more efficient processes, the ICTS umbrella covers resources required throughout the development cycle. The ICTS helps ensure that ICTS investigators have access to state-of-the-art research infrastructure, financial support, and education, facilitates translational research, assists in the creation and sustaining of interdisciplinary research collaborations, and helps move research findings from the initial discovery phase into new diagnostics, therapeutics, and prevention strategies to improve human health.
The ICTS leverages partnerships with other local and regional academic, healthcare, and community partners. These elements complement WU core expertise to form this transformational institute designed to help reinvent and reinvigorate clinical and translational research and clinical research training.
