What is the GHUCCTS Pilot Translational and Clinical Studies (PTCS) Program?

The mission of GHUCCTS and the national Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA) programs includes promotion of interdisciplinary research that will translate basic findings into clinical applications and clinical research findings into community use in order to improve human health. The Pilot Translational and Clinical Studies (PTCS) Program Award provides a mechanism for early and senior investigators to establish a new direction in their research and to facilitate future R01 submission & approval.
