Partnerships

Resources and Benefits for Partnerships:

Through collaborative partnerships, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children’s National (CTSI-CN) helps the research communities at Children’s National and the George Washington University (GW) achieve their research goals and ultimately helps improve the health of the entire community.

We work with a range of partners - federal agencies, academic institutions, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, and foundations that fund research - to design, support, and implement clinical and translational studies.

The resources that we bring to these partnerships help speed study approvals, facilitate recruitment, provide highly specialized knowledge, and enable research projects from concept to implementation. We help partners overcome barriers encountered in protocol implementation and identify collaborative opportunities to advance child and adult health alike.

CTSI-CN offers a unique set of resources for partners:
  • Faculty and staff with strong experience in clinical and translational research, across a range of disciplines, with specialized understanding of child health issues, particularly rare disorders
  • Broad array of novel resources and services for clinical research investigators
  • Access to specialized pediatric populations
  • Data analysis and database management capabilities
  • Consultation in clinical and translational research design
  • Connections to other institutions and resources within the National CTSA Consortium
