In 2013 the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) established three Translational Research Communities (TRC):

1. Drugs/Biologics/Vaccines/Devices
2. Biomarkers and Diagnostic Testing
3. Behavioral, Social and Systems Science

The goals of the ICTR Translational Research Communities (TRCs) are to improve the quality, innovation and impact of translational products through a series of annual symposiums, seminars, workshops and pilot funding.

The Nexus Award Program is designed to accelerate research by providing rapid, targeted funding to address critical gaps in clinical and translational research. These awards will be the “nexus,” or key facilitator, which will propel investigators forward. The research carried out under these awards should also have broad applicability beyond the funded project.
