The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) is a statewide collaboration of Indiana University, Purdue University, and the University of Notre Dame, as well as public and private partnerships. Established in 2008, the Indiana CTSI is supported by a $25 million Clinical and Translational Science Award from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) of the National Institutions of Health, supplemented by nearly $60 million from the state, the three member universities, and public and private partnerships. The Indiana CTSI is a member of a national network of 61 CTSA-funded organizations across the United States. In 2013, the Indiana CTSI received a competitive renewal providing an additional $30M to continue its efforts for the next five years.

NCATS Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) program is designed to strengthen and support the entire spectrum of translational research from scientific discovery to improved patient care.
