Harvard Catalyst | The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center

Harvard Catalyst works with Harvard schools and the academic healthcare centers (hospitals) to build and grow an environment where discoveries are rapidly and efficiently translated to improve human health. We catalyze research across all clinical and translational domains by providing investigators with opportunities such as pilot funding, with free resources such as biostatistics consultations, with educational programs such as the Clinical and Translational (C/T) Research Academy and over a dozen courses, and with a range of web tools that assist in data collection and team collaboration efforts.

Harvard Catalyst offers clinical and translational investigators what they need to conduct clinical experiments, including clinical research nursing, research dietician support, experimental design assistance, sample processing, data management, and information about core facilities.

Advanced Curriculum Compendium

Over the past several years, the landscape of clinical investigation has undergone dramatic changes. New tools have transformed the magnitude and scope of clinical investigation and changes in regulatory practices have altered how we conduct these studies. To prepare clinical investigators for the challenges that lie ahead, the Harvard Catalyst Advanced Curriculum Compendium (ACC) has been developed to provide clinical investigators with opportunities for continuing education in clinical investigation beyond the introductory level.

Through a searchable online catalog, the Advanced Curriculum Compendium offers educational opportunities to learn new methods or update existing clinical investigative skills. The compendium consists of lectures, seminars, and courses that target core competencies fundamental to successful clinical investigation.
