This December, NCATS marks 10 years of harnessing the power of translational science to speed solutions for many diseases at a time. NCATS' mission is to remove or bypass scientific and operational obstacles that stand in the way of getting more treatments to more people more quickly. We do this by advancing translational science.

Translational science looks at the big picture to identify common pitfalls and develop innovative solutions, thus enabling promising discoveries to become real-world applications that improve people’s health. NCATS' activities exemplify translational science principles, such as boundary-crossing collaborations, bold and rigorous approaches, and efficiency and speed.

To commemorate NCATS 10-year anniversary and usher in the next decade of bold solutions, NCATS will host a virtual event on Dec. 7, 2021, from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. EST, to highlight how innovative and team-science approach addresses unmet needs. Featured topics will spotlight the transformational power of data, novel approaches for de-risking a drug’s journey along the preclinical pathway, crosscutting solutions for many diseases, and high-impact innovations in clinical research. Speakers will provide perspective on remaining roadblocks and new opportunities through conversations and lightning round talks.
