Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute

The Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute (ACTSI) is an inter-institutional magnet that concentrates basic, translational and clinical investigators, community clinicians, professional societies and industry collaborators in dynamic clinical and translational research projects. Emory has engaged two of its close academic partners in metropolitan Atlanta – Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) and Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) – to form the ACTSI. This partnership, a strategic multi-institutional alliance, offers compelling, unique and synergistic advantages.
Created in 2007 as one of a national consortium striving to improve the way biomedical research is conducted across the country. The consortium, funded through the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health’s Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA), shares a common vision to translate laboratory discoveries into treatments for patients, engage communities in clinical research efforts and train the next generation of clinical investigators.
