Who We Are

The Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children's National (CTSI-CN) is a partnership between Children’s National Hospital (CNH) and The George Washington University (GW). CTSI-CN provides research infrastructure support to help our investigators translate their scientific discoveries into improved health for the greater Washington, DC region. CTSI-CN also contributes to the acceleration of health research nationally through the consortium of research institutions funded by the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) grant from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).

Join the CTSI-CN Mailing List to stay current on all the resources and funding we offer.

What We Do

For over a decade, CTSI-CN has provided our research community with a wide range of services, tools, and resources to advance clinical and translational research. Our efforts have accelerated research processes at Children’s National and GW, connected local investigators with national initiatives, and provided career-boosting education and training.

Visit the What We Do section for more examples about how CTSI-CN accelerates research locally and nationally.

Virtual Organizer
