May-June TRIbune

 

This issue of The TRIbune features the Translational Research Institute’s (TRI) recent submission of its 1,864-page Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) application. After receiving a one-year bridge award last year, TRI submitted its application to the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) on May 24 for five years of funding.

As TRI Director Laura James, M.D., notes, while there are no guarantees, she believes TRI has submitted a competitive application. A May 7 visit from NCATS leaders and congressional staff affirmed that TRI is headed in the right direction. We also highlight some key numbers related to the application, and our TRI & Me features TRI Associate Director John Arthur, M.D., Ph.D. We also include the latest publication citations by researchers whose work has benefited from TRI resources or funding.
