About CTSA Program Groups

A variety of CTSA Program Groups were established to execute the recommendations of the NCATS Advisory Council Working Group on the IOM Report on the CTSA Program.


Working Group Applications

Interested parties are required to propose and deliver well-defined projects or deliverables that fill identified translational gaps and/or further the CTSA Program objectives in high priority areas in clinical and translational science. Based upon availability, there will be three (3) application submission rounds annually.

Sunsetted Groups

  • Developing Measures for Assessing and Improving Collaborations

    This group is sunsetted.
    The reports generated by this group provide an overview of the state of the science regarding measurement of both quality/process and outcomes to help translational researchers choose measures to assess the functioning and productivity of teams.
  • Dissemination, Implementation (D&I) and Knowledge Transfer

    3rd Tuesday of each month from 12:00 - 1:00 pm ET
    The Dissemination & Implementation (D&I) Workgroup is conducting activities to increase awareness of the critical importance of D&I science to the translational science process.
  • Enterprise Data Warehouse Service and Architecture Models

    2nd Tuesday of the month at 3:00pm ET
    This working group explores the current service and architecture models for providing researchers access to clinical data for use in research, with a focus on enterprise data warehouses.
  • Health Disparities

    2nd Tuesday of each month from 12:00 - 1:00 pm ET
    Identify opportunities to maximize linkages between CTSA Program hubs and other local, state and national stakeholders to support health disparities research and improve health outcomes in rural and urban settings.
  • Imaging Informatics

    Establish best practices and principles for translational imaging and image data sharing. Serve as a forum for sharing experiences, software, and methods as its members embark on imaging informatics activities. The intended outcome is to expand the use
  • Methods & Processes Enterprise Committee

    Third Tuesday of every month from 2 - 3 p.m. ET. 
    Focuses on the scientific study of the process of conducting translational science itself, which enables significant advances in translation
  • Researcher Training and Education and Community Capacity Building

    This group is sunsetted.
    The purpose of the Joint Work Group (JWG) is to address training and education for academic researchers and community members that will increase the capacity of academic researchers to meaningfully engage stakeholders in translational research.
