Continuing its commitment to support translational research, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) of the National Institutes of Health announces five Centers of Research Translation (CORT) (P50) awards. CORTs foster the application of basic research to human diseases within the NIAMS mission. Synergistic teams of scientists carry out these programs to address significant translational research challenges. Each CORT contains a minimum of three highly meritorious research components: one or more translational research projects, one or more research cores, and an administrative core. Through the CORTs, investigators identify new therapeutic targets, develop treatments or diagnostics, or
