Congratulations to the 2012 SUMMA recipients
The 2012 Shared University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic CTSA Award (SUMMA) is a new, competitive award program supporting joint projects from the University of Minnesota Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and Mayo Clinic Center for Translational Science Activities (CTSA).
The overall goal of the SUMMA is to establish long-term collaborations between Clinical and Translational Science Award-funded organizations by building on expertise and infrastructure unique to each institution and generating pilot data that can be used to support extramural grant applications.
