Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is one of more than 60 institutions comprising the national CTSA Consortium. These medical research institutions— called hubs―work together to improve the translational research process to get more treatments to more patients more quickly. The hubs collaborate locally and regionally to catalyze innovation in training, research tools and processes to improve how biomedical research is conducted.
Tufts CTSI offers a range of services and educational opportunities to help researchers from all backgrounds to develop new methods and translate discoveries into practice, break down the barriers that slow the process of determining the effectiveness of those methods, and work together to bring about change that improves human health.
One of the many areas of CTSA work is research participant study enrollment to engage more people in research opportunities. Researchmatch.org is a CTSA consortium effort to develop an electronic volunteer recruitment registry. Its goal is to offer individuals anywhere in the US the opportunity to securely join the registry for free and obtain information about research participation opportunities
