The purpose of this Notice is to announce NIH's intention to reissue a Request for Applications (RFA) soliciting applications for Institutional Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs) with a receipt date of January 17, 2007.  The RFA is expected to be published after August 14, 2006. The intent of the CTSA program is to enable institutions to engage in innovative and transformative efforts that will develop and advance clinical and translational science as a distinct discipline within a definable academic home and for institutions to work together at a national level to advance clinical and translation science.

This Notice encourages institutions that believe that they have the necessary expertise and resources to consider applying for this initiative. The NIH intends to hold a pre-submission webcast/videoconference on October 5, 2006 from 2-4 PM at which NIH staff will answer questions concerning the CTSA program and the RFA. Additional information on webcasting and videoconferencing will be available in the RFA.

In the course of reissuing the CTSA RFA, NIH is interested in receiving comments from interested parties that could result in clarifications of the CTSA program. Comments should be sent to and should be received by 1 July 2006.
