Cores & Modules

Since 2010, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children's National (CTSI-CN) has served as a research partnership between Children's National Health System and the George Washington University. The VISION of the CTSI-CN is to promote innovations that speed the translation of research into improved child, family, and community health. As such, our MISSION is to foster broad collaborative investigation that accelerates discovery and drives dialogue across the bench, bedside, and community continuum. The CTSI-CN structure is made up of eight cores and fourteen modules specifically designed for easy access and flexibility. Use the links below to learn more about each core and module.
