Accelerating research to improve health for all
Spectrum is the Stanford Center for Clinical and Translational Research and Education—bridging each stage of medical innovation from basic research to public health.
A CTSA Hub
Spectrum—the Stanford Center for Clinical and Translational Research and Education—is home to the Stanford Clinical & Translational Science Award (CTSA), funded by the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). NCATS was established in 2012 to transform the translational science process so that new treatments and cures for disease can be delivered to patients faster. Stanford joins a national network of 50-plus research “hubs” that collaborate to share innovations in training, research tools, and processes.
The Overarching Aims of Our CTSA Grant (UL1TR003142)
Educate the next generation of investigators who make up the clinical and translational research (CTR) “workforce” with the skills to carry out innovative clinical, translational, and implementation research to meet the opportunities and challenges of healthcare delivery and wellness maintenance in the 21st Century.
