Boston University Clinical and Translational Science Award Program
The new NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award will create an academic home for clinical and translational research and training. It will fund a hospital and University wide institute that will add multiple other programs to the portfolio of resources available for clinical researchers, including community outreach, research ethics, and bioinformatics to further facilitate translation of basic science discoveries into improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The BU Clinical and Translational Institute (BU-BRIDGE) will create a bridge between scientific discoveries and patient health and will also serve as a bridge linking the many components of Boston University that do research relevant to human health. Dr. Saitz is the director of the Division of Clinical research Resources and collaborates as a co-investigator for clinical research training (K30 program).
