Letters of Support from the Utah CTSI

The University of Utah is the home of the Utah Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), which is an established member of the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program. The CTSA program creates a definable academic home for clinical and translational research. As a member, the CTSI works to transform the local, regional, and national environment to increase the efficiency and speed of clinical and translational research across the country.

The Utah CTSI provides investigators unique, institutional resources and established infrastructure that can enhance and strengthen your proposal. A letter of support from Utah CTSI leaders can be used to convey more than just an endorsement of the proposal. These letters can reinforce attributes of the proposed work, team of investigators, mentorship, and institutional resources/leadership.
