UF-FSU CTSA Strategic Goals and Key Initiatives

Strategic Goal 1: Chart new pathways for developing the translational workforce

Key initiatives:

  • Extend and adapt CTSI Translational Workforce Development models to foster a collaborative community of translational science scholars at FSU
  • Blend institutional resources, team training and network interventions to foster team science in priority areas
  • Expand collaboration with Florida’s historically black colleges and universities to create training programs with diversity themes
  • Develop new training opportunities in informatics, community engagement, learning health system, research methods, regulatory science, precision health and network science

Strategic Goal 2: Strengthen capacity of the learning health system environment and develop transferable models for embedding translational science into the clinical enterprise

Key initiatives:

  • Expand the development, demonstration and dissemination of high-impact pilots and clinical informatics with FSU, OneFlorida and CTSA partners
  • Expand enterprise-wide Consent2Share implementation to UF Health Jacksonville campus and MyChart
  • Evolve Personalized Medicine Program into Precision Medicine Program and expand beyond clinical pharmacogenomics, develop precision health capabilities at individual and population levels

Strategic Goal 3: Expand statewide collaborations and opportunities to advance a participant-centered research agenda that reflects the health priorities and diversity of our catchment area and state

Key initiatives:

  • Lead OneFlorida, Precision Health and Network Science initiatives to expand data resources, multisite recruitment and research collaborations in priority areas
  • Deepen engagement of special populations and stakeholders in UF-FSU catchment area and expand Citizen Scientist Program
  • Strengthen dissemination to rural communities and policy stakeholders with UF/IFAS Extension, Florida Department of Health and Florida Medicaid

Strategic Goal 4: Strengthen regional and national collaborations to accelerate the collective impact of the CTSA network

Key initiatives:

  • Develop advanced data capabilities and methods
