There are currently seven Project Development Teams within the Indiana CTSI:
- Behavioral & Population Sciences: Supports behavioral and population science research projects, including epidemiological research, clinical interventions and access to patients, families, and communities.
- Community & Urban Health: Supports translational research relating to how to improve health outcomes and promote sustainability in urban environments. Strengths include epidemiology, sociology, and visual communications.
- Concepts to Clinic: Supports a wide range of research projects, including those on the path from basic science and/or animal models to all phases of clinical trials.
- Diagnostics & Therapeutic Development: Provides access to core resources at the University of Notre Dame. Strengths include biochemistry, psychology, and mathematics.
- Human Health & Biomedical Technology: Provides access to core resources at Purdue University. Strengths include regulatory issues and intellectual property concerns.
- Networks, Complex Systems & Health: Supports network science and complex systems research with a health-related focus. Strengths include survey research, social and biological networks, and statistical methodology.
- Pediatric Sciences: Supports multidisciplinary clinical and translational research projects in pediatric populations.
The PDT/PRMC mechanism is for faculty within the Indiana CTSI consortium, including Indiana University, Purdue University, and the University of Notre Dame. Note: Post-doctoral and clinical fellows can utilize this mechanism for project advice, but not for pilot funding.
The overall mission of the PDTs/PRMCs is to “Increase the translation of health sciences research and health care delivery to the people of Indiana and beyond by facilitating an environment that enables the conduct of clinical and translational research.”
