Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute

Delivering on its promise of collaborative research partnerships, the IBRI has joined the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) at Indiana University School of Medicine to translate scientific discoveries in the laboratory into clinical trials and new patient treatments. As a member of CTSI, IBRI has access to more than 70 core research laboratories and additional research collaborators.

The Indiana CTSI was established in 2008 by a Clinical and Translational Science Award from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). It is a member of a national network of 61 CTSA-funded organizations across the nation and collaborates with academic partners Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame, in addition to public and private partnerships. The engagement of the CTSI’s translational resources in partnership with IBRI’s industry partners’ development and market-based resources creates a powerful and novel approach to fulfill the missions of both the IBRI and CTSI.
