Collaborate Across the Consortium: Apply for a Synergy Paper
Collaborative teams across the CTSA Program Consortium have until April 29 to apply for a Synergy Paper, a CLIC-supported effort to help three or more hubs collaborate to turn the latest ideas in clinical and translational science into a high-quality scientific publication.
Synergy Papers are designed to promote research that advances the field of translational science while also strengthening the bonds of cooperation between CTSA Program hubs and partners. The collaborative team that best identifies and addresses an important gap or challenge in translational science will receive one year of CLIC project management support, along with funds toward copy editing and publishing.
To apply for a Synergy Paper, or to find previous and ongoing Synergy Papers, click below.

Insights to Inspire 2020
Insights to Inspire, the series of blogs and webinars highlighting success within NCATS' Common Metrics Initiative, will begin its 2020 season soon!
Insights to Inspire (I2I) is meant to foster innovation, encourage collaboration between CTSA Program hubs, and to inspire action. The CLIC team has spent the spring interviewing hubs that have had success in improving a given metric of the Common Metrics Initiative, with this year's focus on the Career Development metric.
Beginning in June, the highlighted hubs will be featured in a set of blogs and webinars in order to share the unique and innovative approaches the hubs successfully implemented.
In the mean time, get inspired by checking out last year's series of I2I blogs below!

Find COVID-19 Clinical Studies and Post Your Own
Follow the link below to browse studies from other hubs and to submit your own.
To help create a centralized location for COVID-19 specific clinical trials.gov, and preferably pre-clinictrials.gov, investigational research studies, NCATS and the CTSA Program Coordinator Centers are asking hubs to share their research.
CTSA Program hubs where studies are occurring or that are partnering on research studies are asked to post their investigations on the CLIC website.

VCU Wright Center Facilitates 3D Printed Ventilator Project

Like doctors across the country, Benjamin Nicholson, M.D., knows the surge is coming.
The emergency department doctor has seen the predictions for the spread of COVID-19 and knows a finite supply of ventilators exists across the country to support the growing number of patients experiencing respiratory symptoms of the novel coronavirus.
Nicholson, who is also a clinical instructor at Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Medicine, had an idea: What if he could take a manual resuscitator, the bag valve mask used by first responders and seen on every medical TV show, and automate it? And what if he could make the plans available to other health systems or providers, anyone with access to a few tools and a 3D printer?
