9 NCRR CTSA National Strategic Plan Priorities Goal 1: Enhancing National Clinical and Translational Research Capability  Clinical research management  Research infrastructure  Phenotyping – human and preclinical models Goal 2: Enhancing Training and Career Development of Clinical and Translational Investigators Goal 3: Enhancing Consortium-Wide Collaborations  Social networking  Inventory of resources  Data sharing Goal 4: Enhancing the Health of Our Communities and the Nation  Community engagement  Public health policy (i.e. comparative effectiveness research)

10 NCRR CTSA National Strategic Plan Priorities: Goal 5 (Adopted April 21, 2009) The CTSA consortium will focus on three components for this goal:  Education and training requirements for T1 investigators  Collaborative demonstration projects to develop and implement the infrastructure to conduct proof-of-concept studies in humans across the different CTSA sites  Innovative and novel models of technology transfer to advance translational projects Goal 5: To enhance strategies and resources for the efficient movement of T1 translational discoveries and knowledge into clinical testing

11 NCRR Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) Key Function Committee Goals  Share best practices across the CTSA consortium in the area of PPPs  Implement policies and procedures to facilitate PPPs across the CTSA consortium  Provide assistance with new or established partnerships to identify partners and partnership models Mission To facilitate the implementation of partnerships with industry, other academia and patient advocacy groups to support and conduct medical research, research training and the dissemination of information

12 NCRR Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) Example: The West Coast Licensing Partnership  Adds value by bundling related technologies over individual tools and technologies  Strengthens inter-institutional relationships between member partners  Increases global access to research tools by promotion of non-exclusive licensing  Provides simple one-stop licensing of technologies from multiple institutions  Saves time and money from negotiating multiple license agreements Oregon CTSA is part of a group of institutions willing to designate a subset of their technologies for marketing and licensing purposes

13 NCRR CTSA Consortium – Building Connections with Business Schools  Develop business plans, design, and implement community surveys  Create innovative cross-educational programs  Develop case studies to pilot programs  Collaborate with international colleagues  Prepare cost analyses  Protect CTSA-developed patents  Form industry partnership programs CTSA are partnering with business schools to:

14 NCRR Cultivating Networks: The National Consortium Working together as a Consortium, the NIH and CTSA Institutions have established a committee structure to execute the vision and goals of the CTSA Program

15 NCRR Educational Impact of CTSA Program  Doubled the clinical and translational training workforce from 2006 - 2008  Increased the number of regional training interactions among consortium sites  Awarded a supplement to develop a National CTSA Educational Resource Program (NCERP) that will:  Identify, catalog and assess training modules in clinical and translational research  Enhance and broaden training opportunities for clinician scientists across the CTSA consortium
