The Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) is pleased to announce the availability of support for pilot and collaborative studies.


The mission of GHUCCTS and the national Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA) programs includes promotion multidisplinary and inter-institutional teams and research that will translate basic findings into clinical applications and clinical research findings into community use in order to improve human health. Our Pilot Translational and Clinical Studies program (PTCS) has been a critical and effective stimulus for collaboration that has stimulated the development and implementation of new clinical and translational research (CTR) projects.

The PTCS program is designed to bring about further advances that will contribute to improving the process of research throughout our CTSA hub and the national CTSA consortium. These contributions will draw upon a range of GHUCCTS capacities from community-based recruitment of underserved populations to the use of high performance computing in the development of therapeutic agents.
