Wash U Receives $50m NIH Translational Science Grant


November 14, 2012 | Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has received a $50 million grant from NIH to help speed the translation of scientific discoveries into improvements in human health. The grant will reportedly help Washington University pursue the goals of the BioMed 21 initiative to encourage cross-disciplinary and translational research. Over the next five years, the School of Medicine's Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) will increasingly focus on promoting three areas likely to have a high impact: translating research in genetics and genomics into patient care; developing and evaluating new therapeutics; and improving ways to disseminate and implement research findings so they become part of regular medical practice.
