[Source: UA News] - In an academic environment bustling with research activity such as the University of Arizona, scientists routinely make discoveries that hold the potential for new drugs, new medical treatments or new medical devices. However, it can take years for such a discovery to make it from the "lab bench" to the "bedside" in the form of a new treatment that benefits patients.
To boost its bench-to-bedside science and position itself in a more competitive place to acquire translational research funding from the National Institutes of Health, the UA has formed a Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, known as CTSI, to provide the groundwork for therapeutic advances that will directly advance medical care.
