NCATS, part of the National Institutes of Health, is improving health through smarter science. Visit http://ncats.nih.gov to learn more about NCATS.
The NCATS mission is to catalyze the generation of innovative methods and technologies that will enhance the development, testing, and implementation of diagnostics and therapeutics across a wide range of human diseases and conditions.
NCATS conducts and supports research on the science and operation of translation to allow more treatments to get to more patients more quickly. The Center focuses on what is common across diseases and the translational process by studying translation on a system-wide level as a scientific and operational problem. Working in partnership with the public and private sectors, NCATS strives to develop innovations to reduce, remove, or bypass costly and time-consuming bottlenecks in the translational research pipeline; demonstrate their usefulness; and disseminate the resulting data to the broader scientific community.
