Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) (https://www.tuftsctsi.org/
), one of more than 50 organizations supported by NIH Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs), was established in 2008 to transform the scientific research process through education, collaboration, and infrastructure services. Tufts CTSI accelerate translation of laboratory research into clinical use, medical practice, and health policy. An important part of Tufts CTSI is its Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC), which conducts a wide range of clinical studies, including Phase I studies, in research with participants across the lifespan in outpatient and inpatient settings. The CTRC offers an array of skills and resources to facilitate clinical research that aims to prevent, treat, or cure disease.
