About Pods

About Pods

The CTSA Program Pods aim to promote communication between NCATS, the CTSA Program Steering Committee, and the CTSA Program hubs. Each Pod represents a subgroup of CTSA hub PIs, and is led by a current member of the CTSA Steering Committee who is designated the Pod Lead. Pods meet regularly to review updates from the Steering Committee, discuss issues raised by the local hubs, and provide an opportunity for the CTSA community to raise other topics to CTSA Program leadership through Pod Submissions. For more information on the current Pod structure and Pod activities, refer to the Pod Quick Reference Guide.

Pod Submissions

Pod Submissions

The Pod Submission Form serves as one of the primary means for Pods to communicate with CTSA Program leadership. After each Pod meeting, the Pod Lead is responsible for submitting meeting notes and any feedback or questions raised by Pod members through this form. These submissions are then posted on the CCOS website and reviewed by the Steering Committee on a monthly basis. In some cases, the submissions may be attached to other relevant communications such as meeting notes or webinars. If you need detailed instructions on how to submit Pod feedback, you can refer to the Pod Submissions SOP.
