The Duke Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is re-organizing its work into mission-oriented pillars which will be comprised of centers, programs, and initiatives.

CTSI Pillar leaders will provide strategic oversight and guidance to synergize the activities of these programs. This new structure will facilitate sharing and building of new ideas and opportunities, enhancing the CTSI mission and vision, extending CTSI integration with key Duke priorities, increasing connection and collaboration, improving CTSI overall operations, leveraging the great work already being done in CTSI, and addressing other critical priorities. CTSI Pillars will promote core principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as anti-biased and anti-racist practices.Steve Grambow, PhD
