The University of Chicago Institute for Translational Medicine (ITM) is a member of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical and Translational Science Awards consortium that helps convert biomedical research into health improvement.

During the last ten years, the ITM has connected more than 1,800 researchers and community organizations with funding, training, and other resources while forging connections across departments, universities, and patient advocacy groups. Our mission is to improve health outcomes through collaborative translational science, bringing together scientific professionals, institutions, and community members throughout Chicagoland to participate in impactful health research.

Since its 2007 inception, total funding for the ITM has exceeded $60 million through the NIH’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) CTSA grant numbers UL1 TR000430, KL2 TR000431, and TL1 TR000432, and from the University of Chicago Medicine and Biological Sciences.

The organization has awarded more than $5.1 million in Pilot Awards to researchers and more than $1.3 million to investigators to subsidize the cost of using sophisticated Core Facilities equipment and services.

The ITM works with 62 institutions across the country as part of the CTSA consortium to advance medicine in innovative ways and transform research results into improved clinical practice.
