NIH invites applications for Institutional Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs) that will enable applicants to innovate and to transform their own environment to develop and advance clinical and translational science as a distinct discipline. NIH Roadmap resources will give institutions flexibility to develop their existing resources and talent and to propose ways to increase the efficiency and speed of clinical and translational research. The academic home, which can be a center, department, or institute (C/D/I), is expected to include faculty who conduct original research, develop graduate and postgraduate training curricula and lead programs that integrate clinical and translational science across multiple departments, schools, research institutes and hospitals.

Applicants will be expected to define the Key Functions, components, governance and structure of their C/D/I. They should describe the existing and planned activities that would be integrated to create the CTSA, and the role that the participating schools and departments within the applicant organization, affiliated institutions, community, foundations and industry would play. The C/D/I will provide career paths in clinical and translational science through research education, training, and career development leading to advanced degrees (M.S. or Ph.D.). The C/D/I will work in close cooperation with activities of the NIH Roadmap, NIH Institutes and Centers, and other appropriate trans-NIH activities. The C/D/I at each institution will be expected to complement and interact with existing centers that are funded by the categorical institutes of the NIH and to interact with affiliated institutions and industry.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, October 5, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to a three-page overview of the proposed project.
