Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs) will attract basic, translational, and clinical investigators, community clinicians, clinical practices, networks, professional societies, and industry to develop new professional interactions, programs, and research projects. Through innovative advanced degree programs, CTSAs will foster a new discipline of Clinical and Translational Science that will be much broader and deeper than their separate components. This RFA is developed as a Roadmap initiative. All NIH Institutes and Centers participate in Roadmap initiatives. This program will use the NIH U54 award mechanism that includes linked K and T components.

The CEER program is designed to develop transdisciplinary research, health, and policy teams that have the expertise and flexibility to anticipate and/or respond rapidly to the large number of ELSI issues related to emerging genome technologies and information. By transcending disciplinary boundaries, CEERs will remove boundaries between and among basic and social scientists, clinical researchers and health professionals, researchers in ethics, law and the humanities and the public. Further, CEERs will help to break down barriers between people in the majority and those in communities of color, by engaging diverse representation in planning, research, policy, and training activities. In addition, the CEERs will play a role in ensuring that relevant ELSI research findings are available to policy makers in their deliberations on issues related to genome technologies and information. Finally, CEERs will be responsible for training the next generation of ELSI researchers, with particular emphasis on training researchers from minority communities. This program will use the NIH Specialized Center (P50) grant mechanism.

By transcending disciplinary boundaries, CEERs will remove boundaries between and among basic and social scientists, clinical researchers and health professionals, researchers in ethics, law and the humanities and the public. Further, CEERs will help to break down barriers between people in the majority and those in communities of color, by engaging diverse representation in planning, research, policy, and training activities. In addition, the CEERs will play a role in ensuring that relevant ELSI research findings are available to policy makers in their deliberations on issues related to genome technologies and information. Finally, CEERs will be responsible for training the next generation of ELSI researchers, with particular emphasis on training researchers from minority communities. This program will use the NIH Specialized Center (P50) grant mechanism.
