Public Health Relevance

/Relevance The regulatory processes involved in translating biomedical discoveries into clinical applications are complex and evolve rapidly, often creating barriers that hinder the translation of discoveries into products to improve human health. The goal of the CTSA program is to tackle system-wide scientific and operational changes that solve the outstanding problems limiting the efficiency, effectiveness and reach of translational science. This application supports the CTSA goal by improving the accuracy, efficiency, and effectiveness of the regulatory process.
