January 2014 Lunch Video: Indiana CTSI Grant Renewal: A New Era Begins!

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. Established in 2008, the Indiana CTSI is supported by a $25 million Clinical and Translational Science Award from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) 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 61 CTSA-funded organizations across the United States.

In October, CTSI announced it had received approval of its grant renewal application from NIH and received nearly $30 million to continue its mission accelerating research discoveries across Indiana and beyond.  Please join us for a conversation with Dr. Anantha Shekhar, director of the Indiana CTSI and associate dean for translational sciences at the IU School of Medicine as he talks about what the grant renewal means for Indiana and CTSI’s partners as well as what changes and updates were made to keep the institute competitive.
