The IDeA Clinical and Translational Research Programs support clinical and translational research through programs that develop research workforce and infrastructure, enhance the ability of investigators and institutions to develop competitive clinical research programs, and strengthen collaborative research that targets health conditions prevalent in IDeA states. Funding programs include:
Formerly named the IDeA Networks for Clinical and Translational Research (IDeA-CTR) program, CTR-N funds statewide or multi-state regional networks that support biomedical research capacity building in IDeA states that have been conducting significant levels of clinical and translational research, to further enhance their capacity to enable and strengthen research on health challenges faced by the populations they serve. The program provides support to: expand existing infrastructure for clinical and translational research; develop the research workforce and enhance the network organizations' abilities to design and implement clinical and translational research programs; and coordinate clinical research activities across one or more IDeA states.
Notice of Funding Opportunity: PAR-23-241
CTR-D supports clinical and translational research, workforce development, and infrastructure enhancement at health research organizations in IDeA-eligible states that have limited clinical and translational research capacity. CTR-D awards are intended to build a foundation of clinical and translational research expertise and infrastructure that will enable recipients to conduct research on diseases and health challenges faced by the populations they serve.

The IDeA Clinical Research Resource Center (I-CRRC) was funded in summer 2023 and aims to increase the capacity in IDeA states to conduct clinical trials and complex observational studies by 1) strengthening communication and developing collaborations between health research institutions in IDeA states and clinical trial sponsors; and 2) developing clinical research coordinators with the knowledge and skills to manage clinical trials and complex observational studies.
