Developing new therapies and getting them to patients is long and difficult. During public health emergencies, such as the Covid-19 Pandemic, science must move faster than ever. That is where translational science comes in. Translational science is focused on streamlining the process of moving (“translating”) lab findings into medical practice and treatments to improve health and well-being.

NCATS is supporting research activities spanning the translational science spectrum to address the novel coronavirus 2019 (SARS-CoV-2) and the disease it causes (COVID-19). To accelerate translational research, NCATS has developed research tools, technologies, expertise and collaborative networks that can quickly pivot to address urgent public health issues.
