Who can use the services of the CTSA?
The staff, facilities and resources of the CTSA are available to everyone involved in research at Mayo Clinic. In particular, the CTSA seeks to support the career development and research projects of young investigators in the early stages of their careers, who may not have established, extramurally funded research programs or extensive institutional funding.
Some programs have eligibility and pre-approval requirements, but consultative services are open to all researchers. Resource allocation decisions are focused on the potential for attracting future extramural funding and developing young investigators as well as scientific merit and feasibility.
