[Source: GenomeWeb News] – The director of the University of Arizona’s newly-formed Clinical and Translational Science Institute hopes the research hub, along with other recently-completed and planned facility projects, will succeed where two past attempts failed in winning for the university a long-sought membership in the National Institutes of Health’s Clinical and Translational Science Awards consortium.

The new institute plans to hire seven clinician-scientists over the next three years, using $6 million committed by UA for a translational biomedicine program, institute director Fernando Martinez told GenomeWeb Daily News. Each clinician-scientist is expected to have working with them five to eight postdocs, graduate students, and staffers.
