Clinical & Translational Science Institute / Collaboration / CLIC: CTSA Program Coordination


Center for Leading Innovation & Collaboration

Center for Leading Innovation and Collaboration logoThe Center for Leading Innovation & Collaboration (CLIC) coordinates the efforts of the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program, a network of more than 60 of the nation’s top biomedical research institutions – including the University of Rochester. Both the CLIC and the CTSA Program help researchers work together to turn scientific discoveries into health improvements faster.

Research teams from across the University of Rochester can learn about translational science advances, access educational resources, connect with like-minded experts, and recruit talent from across the country through the CLIC website.


Join a CLIC Enterprise Committee to engage with peers across the country on topics like collaboration and engagement, informatics, workforce development, and integrating research across the lifespan. Once you are part of an Enterprise Committee, you can also join or create Working Groups to collaborate on more granular clinical and translational science issues. Working Groups should strive to produce a tangible end product, such as a white paper or workshop.

Learn and Develop

Access a variety of education and career development resources from across the CTSA Program in CLIC Education Clearinghouse. Clinical researchers and trainees funded by TL1 or KL2 awards can also take advantage of the CLIC Career Development Community, an interactive space for collaboration and networking.

CLIC also hosts an Opportunities Board where members of the clinical and translational research community can find and post jobs, internships, sabbaticals and training opportunities.  

Stay in the Loop

Stay abreast of the latest translational science advances and public events from across the CTSA Program on the CLIC’s News and Events pages. You can also get the latest news by following @CLIC_CTSA on Twitter and subscribing to the CLIC News Roundup, as bi-weekly newsletter.


The CLIC became part of the UR CTSI in 2017 when the University of Rochester was awarded a $19 million CTSA Program coordinating center grant. Learn more about the grant.
