A Synergy Paper is a collaborative manuscript developed by three (3) or more CTSA Program hubs spanning at least 2 stages of translational research, with the purpose of addressing substantial challenges in clinical or translational research. Synergy Paper teams receive logistical support from CLIC.
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.
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.
