Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. The NIH has new National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, or NCATS. Dr. Kathy Hudson is the acting Deputy Director.
Hudson: Translational science for us is really re-engineering the process of moving basic discoveries to new medicines, and that pipeline has been sort of the same for decades and decades and decades. And so like the water mains and gas pipes in your cities and town, that pipeline needs to be re-engineered from time to time, and so that's what NCATS is really about is bringing about better ways to do the whole process of drug development.
Narrator: For more about NCATS, visit the website http://ncats.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
