In 2006, the National Institute of Health (NIH) created the Clinical and Translational Science Awards to provide resources to clinical and translational science researchers. Between 2014 and 2019, the NIH, through the National Center for the Advancement of Translational Science (NCATS), awarded approximately $3 billion to US Academic Medical Centers to build a national network of program hubs that serve to meet key NCATS goals and initiatives. Today, 50 + Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program hubs form this network. Each CTSA hub has its own distinct program directives and practices to achieve NCATS goals within the context of their institutional needs and opportunities. Each CTSA program hub has a corresponding website that highlights its clinical and translational science centered programs. CTSA hub websites are a critical communication gateway to assist the clinical and translational science community and promote CTSA hub offerings. The 50 + CTSA hub websites present unique approaches to the five NCATS goals: (1) collaboration and engagement; (2) workforce development; (3) clinical and translational research methods and processes; (4) the special and underserved populations across the lifespan of research; and (5) cutting-edge informatics.
