The overall mission of the University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UF CTSI) is to improve human health by accelerating the translation of scientific discoveries into practical applications and practices for the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure of human diseases. It is geared to attract individual and team investigators to amplify their capabilities, and to help them more effectively and more quickly carry out their clinical and translational research. UF CTSI improvements include awarding of funding for pilot projects, changing the IRB submission process, creating new informatics resources, and introducing a common reimbursement price list for clinical research charges.

The UF CTSI’s NIH award of nearly $26 million has been matched by more than $93 million in UF commitments. The UF CTSI currently offers more than 40 services to UF investigators. We partner with other CTSAs, Florida State University, the Orlando Regional Medical Center, the North Florida/ South Georgia Veterans Health System and the Moffitt Cancer Center. Entering our third year, the CTSI funds 140 faculty and staff, supports 11 programs, 12 clinical research units (including the UF Clinical Research Center), five core labs (including a large-scale biorepository) and six educational programs (including a Master of Science in clinical and translational science).
