National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences

Name: National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences
Description: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has established a new center, called the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). Currently, many costly, time-consuming bottlenecks exist in the translational pipeline. Working in partnership with the public and private sectors, the Center will develop innovative ways to reduce, remove or bypass these bottlenecks. This will speed the delivery of new drugs, diagnostics and medical devices to patients.

The mission of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences is to catalyze the generation of innovative methods and technologies that will enhance the development, testing, and implementation of diagnostics and therapeutics across a wide range of human diseases and conditions.

NCATS is formed primarily by uniting and realigning existing NIH programs that play key roles in translational science. The Center will not be a drug development company, but will focus on using science to create powerful new tools and technologies that can be adopted widely by translational researchers in all sectors.
