The Clinical and Translational Research Section (CTR) is an interdivisional program in the Department of Medicine that facilitates and promotes clinical and translational science discovery at National Jewish Health.
The CTR Section faculty consist of members from all of the divisions and sections of medicine, including: Allergy and Immunology, Cardiology, Community Research, Critical Care and Hospital Medicine, Environmental and Occupational Health, Gastroenterology, Mycobacterial and Respiratory Infections, Nephrology, Oncology, Pathology, Pulmonary Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, Psychosocial and Rheumatology. The clinical research activities vary tremendously and include interstitial and autoimmune lung disease, COPD, critical care, sleep, cancer and GI.
Monthly lectures and open discussion are held in an effort to identify potential obstacles to conducting clinical research and securing grants for clinical trials by new and young clinical investigators. Presentations focus on the clinical and translational research being performed at National Jewish Health. Select investigators outside of the Department are also invited in order to provide opportunities for collaboration. Pilot research grants and NIH Grant Writing Seminar travel awards are offered yearly.
