The Coalition for Clinical & Translational Science (CCTS)

CCTS is the unified voice of the clinical and translational science research community, of which The Clinical Research Forum is a member. Started as a coalition of organizations with shared mission to support clinical and translational science, CCTS has grown into a nationwide grassroots network of dedicated individuals who work together to educate Congress and the Administration about the value and importance of federal clinical and translational research and research training and career development activities.

CCTS’s goals are to ensure:

  • Full spectrum of medical research is adequately funded
  • Next generation of researchers is well-prepared
  • Regulatory and public policy environment facilitates ongoing expansion and advancement of the field of clinical and translational science
