In support of the consortium’s mission, CCOS provides a platform to share resources created by the CTSA Program and its participants. Resources include education and career development materials, a job opportunity board, a directory of all CTSA hubs, a repository of CTSA surveys, and information about Transforming Expanded Access to Maximize Support and Study (TEAMSS), among others.
The calendar includes a variety of events and meetings designed to enhance collaboration and learning across the consortium. Calendar entries include regularly scheduled committee and Working Group meetings, as well as events submitted to CCOS by members of the consortium. Consortium members can actively participate in shaping the future of the CTSA Program by using the calendar to stay up to date with and participate in events and meetings.
Additional events and meetings will be released over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for updates!

The CCOS jobs board is updated regularly to share opportunities that may be of interest to CTSA Program participants. This resource serves as a valuable tool for individuals seeking employment within the consortium or looking to advance their careers in the field of clinical and translational science Users can expect to find a range of job postings, from research positions to administrative roles. Additional information to come.
The hub directory is an essential resource for our consortium members. It provides a comprehensive list of all participating CTSA Program hubs, enabling members to quickly and easily identify collaborators across the CTSA network.
The CTSA Program frequently conducts surveys to gather valuable feedback and insights from various members across the consortium. These surveys cover a wide range of topics, including education, training, research, funding opportunities, and more. When consortium members participate in our surveys, they have the opportunity to share their experiences and provide input on critical issues that affect the consortium's operations and overall direction. The survey results are used to inform decision-making and drive continuous improvement within the CTSA Program consortium. Additional information to come.
Transforming Expanded Access to Maximize Support and Study (TEAMSS) is a federated, national consortium for Expanded Access interventions that aims to improve access to experimental therapies. TEAMSS is led by the University of Michigan in partnership with Duke University, the University of Rochester, and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Expanded Access is designed to benefit patients with limited treatment options. The TEAMSS consortium establishes a unified approach to positively impact the care received by these vulnerable patients. Additional information to come.
The CTSA Program produces a wide range of publications covering various topics related to clinical and translational research. Publications captured here include peer-reviewed journals, white papers, and reports. These publications reflect the consortium's commitment to fostering collaboration, advancing knowledge, and promoting innovation in clinical and translational research.

Research and Operational Tools
Consortium members share a variety of research and operational tools designed to support CTSA Program participants in their clinical and translational research efforts. These tools include data management and analysis software, clinical trial management systems, and patient recruitment platforms, among others. Sharing these tools helps contribute to the CTSA Program’s goal of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical and translational science. Training and support for these tools are also available, ensuring that members have the knowledge and skills needed to use them effectively. Additional information to come.
Networks and Affiliate Programs
The consortium’s network and affiliate programs are essential components of the CTSA Program, providing members with valuable opportunities for collaboration and knowledge sharing. Networks are collaborations between different institutions within the consortium that provide members with access to a wide range of resources and support, including funding opportunities, training and education programs, and research collaboration opportunities. Affiliate programs are funded by NCATS to further a wide variety of objectives that support the Center’s strategic goals. These include the Accrual to Clinical Trials (ACT) Network, the National Center for Data to Health (CD2H), IRB Reliance Exchange (IREx), the Regulatory Guidance for Academic Research of Drugs and Devices (ReGARDD), the Streamlined, Multisite, Accelerated Resources for Trials IRB Reliance (SMART IRB) platform, the Transforming Expanded Access to Maximize Support and Study (TEAMSS) consortium, and the Trial Innovation Network (TIN).
