Project Support

Donald A.B. Lindberg Research Fellowship

The Lindberg Research Fellowship Endowment, established in 2003, provides an annual award by the Medical Library Association through a competitive grant process. The purpose of this fellowship is to fund research aimed at expanding the research knowledge base, linking the information services provided by librarians to improved health care and advances in biomedical research.

Institute for Clinical and Translational Sciences

ICTS LogoTo meet the intent of the national CTSA initiative, Washington University established the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS). By funding some new resources, collaborating with a variety of existing resources, and coordinating with the WU central administration to identify various ways to create more efficient processes, the ICTS umbrella covers resources required throughout the development cycle. This research was supported in part by CTSA Grant UL1 TR000448.
