Thank you to Indiana legislators Rep. Susan Brooks, Rep. André Carson, Sen. Joe Donnelly and Sen. Todd Young, who all wrote letters in support of the important work being done through our Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI).
The Indiana CTSI recently received $33 million in renewed funding from the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) to aid us in our goal of improving health in Indiana through research.
“The Indiana CTSI has forged significant partnerships and engaged in vital research since it was established in 2008.” Rep. Brooks said in a press release. “This additional funding will accelerate their work to combat the opioid crisis, obesity, infant mortality, chronic disease and health disparities. Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame have been leading research institutions of the Indiana CTSI and have collaborated with organizations including Indiana University Health, BioCrossroads, Eli Lilly & Co., Cook Industries and Roche Diagnostics. I am proud Indiana CTSI’s strong collaborations are receiving deserved recognition and support through this grant funding from the National Institutes of Health.”
