This joint meeting of the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) Advisory Council and the Cures Acceleration Network Review Board will feature presentations by NCATS leadership and invited guests. NCATS staff will present proposed initiative concepts for Advisory Council/CAN Review Board consideration. NCATS is primarily focused on how to increase the availability of new treatments and cures to patients. The CAN helps NCATS by advising and providing recommendations to the NCATS director on the policies, programs and procedures for carrying out the duties of the Office of the Director and on identifying significant barriers to successful translation of basic science into clinical application.
