The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) is a statewide collaboration of Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame, as well as public and private partnerships, which facilitates the translation of scientific discoveries in the lab into clinical trials and new patient treatments in Indiana and beyond.
Led by director Dr. Anantha Shekhar, the mission of the Indiana CTSI is to increase translational biomedical research and improve the health of people in Indiana and beyond, by transforming the participating institutions to create an environment that facilitates the conduct of clinical and translational science research. The CTSI brings together the resources of academic, commercial, and community groups across the state. It provides a “home” to investigators with expertise in a wide range of fields relevant to clinical and translational research.
Established in 2008, the Indiana CTSI was created with a $25 million Clinical and Translational Science Award from the National Center for Research Resources of the National Institutions of Health, supplemented by nearly $60 million from the state, the three member universities, and public and private partnerships. The Indiana CTSI is a member of a national network of 55 CTSA-funded organizations across the United States. It is funded by NIH grants RR025759, RR025760 and RR025761.
