NYCON, the northeast regional consortium of CTSAs, was created to joint ventures among the New York and Connecticut area CTSA institutions to develop:
  • Collaboration between CTSA programs in the areas of medical scientist training;
  • Creation of regional databases of facilities;
  • Regional training opportunities for investigators and research coordinators;
  • Exploration of barriers to improved social networking and the sharing of resources and expertise, among others.
