UC Davis at forefront of national initiative to transform research to improve human health

(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) -- The National Institutes of Health today named UC Davis as part of a national consortium that will transform how clinical and translational research is conducted, enabling researchers to provide new treatments more efficiently and quickly to patients.

The consortium is made up of 12 academic health centers located throughout the nation, each funded through an NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award. UC Davis will receive $24.8 million over the next five years to expand the innovative and collaborative components of its existing research enterprise and to establish the UC Davis Center for Clinical and Translational Research.

"Translational research is key to advancing our knowledge of disease and for improving patient care," said Ann Bonham, executive associate dean for research and education at UC Davis Health System. "It is based on collaborative and dynamic interactions among physicians and scientists who ensure that a free flow of information about the current 'science' of disease gained from studies at the laboratory bench is equally focused on improving health and meeting the needs of practicing physicians, patients and the community at large. By creating a dynamic environment to foster these collaborations, our new center will accelerate the translation of scientific discoveries into solutions for complex medical diseases."

The NIH established the national consortium because it recognized the need to change the way clinical research is done in the United States.

"The traditional academic model isolates people according to their area of study," said Lars Berglund, a physician-scientist and assistant dean for clinical research who will serve as director of the UC Davis Center for Clinical and Translational Research. "Scientists conduct research and publish their results in specialty journals, which other specialists in their field read, but with delays inherent in the publication pipelin
