Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute

Project: Research project

Project Details


The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) was created in 2008 at the crest of a wave
of transformation of the three research universities in Indiana and has become a flagship catalyst for the
state's biomedical Initiatives. The mission of the Indiana CTSI is to be an integrated home for clinical and
translational research that creates a shared, investigator-friendly Institutional environment and provides
easily accessible resources, services, and training to conduct the highest-quality research dedicated to
improving human health across Indiana and beyond. The Four Specific Aims of the Indiana CTSI are:
Aim I. Implement an Indiana roadmap for building the ideal research environment and collaborative platforms
to conduct innovative research using our excellent multi-institutional, public-private partnerships throughout
the state of Indiana and beyond by bringing together all three major research universities, Indiana, Purdue
and Notre Dame, the state's key health care provider partners, private sector and corporate entities, and
local and state agencies to create the infrastructure. Aim II. Further develop our successful Indiana CTSI
established with the previous award into an integrated home that supports the careers and research
projects of translational scientists and trainees through a streamlined structure, empowered leadership and
administration, coordinated partner institution resources,.robust informatics infrastructure, innovative project
development teams, and continuous evaluation and process improvement Aim III. Promote utilization of our
innovative services and a well-tested network of resources and technologies in order to catalyze high-quality,
efficient, and safe clinical and translational research. We have created Project Assistance and Resources for
Translational Scientists (PARTS) suite of both established and new research support services and
resources, a statewide network of technology cores, and a coordinated human subject research services and
facilities. Aim IV. Extend our success in statewide education and training of clinical and translational
research workforce through our Career development. Education and Research Training (CERT) suite of
programs that includes successful existing programs, new training programs, and novel educational tools.
RELEVANCE (See instructions):
The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) was created in 2008 as a statewide institute
by the partnership of three research universities in Indiana (Indiana, Purdue and Notre Dame) and has
become an essential resource for the state's biomedical initiatives. Here we describe its innovative vision, its
impact, and its success in creating public-private partnerships to benefit the health and economy of the state.
