  • The Center for Leading Innovation and Collaboration (CLIC), housed at the University of Rochester, is the coordinating center for the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program, which supports a network of more than 50 of the nation’s top biomedical research institutions. The purpose of CLIC is to serve the CTSA Program through coordination, transparent communication, actionable metrics, network analytics and innovative collaboration tools for use around the consortium, and to make the work and accomplishments of the CTSA Program vibrantly visible to all stakeholders.
  • The Association for Clinical and Translational Science (ACTS) supports research, education, advocacy and mentoring, integrating multiple disciplines across the full translational science spectrum. Through collaborative efforts, ACTS provides a forum for members to share studies, promote best practices, and form professional relationships.
