The Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) was recently named a recipient of the 2013 Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA). Tufts CTSI first received federal funding in 2008, and the new award provides more than $24 million in federal funding to support the Institute’s work over the next five years.
The Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University is an integral member of Tufts CTSI and its role will continue to drive One Health issues, said Dean Deborah T. Kochevar, D.V.M., Ph.D.
“A One Health committee is being developed within Tufts CTSI that will bring together the institute’s diverse partners to share knowledge on human and animal health,” she said.
Tufts CTSI accelerates the translation of laboratory research into clinical use, medical practice and health policy. With its 39 CTSI partners, Tufts CTSI connects people to research resources, consultation, and education, and fosters collaboration with scholars of all disciplines and with community members, with the ultimate goal of improving the health of the public. CTSI partners include 12 Tufts University schools and research centers, 10 Tufts-affiliated hospitals, three additional academic institutions, nine community-based organizations, and five industry partners (including three health plans).
