Indiana CTSI Using New Grant Management Software

The Indiana CTSI is now using the WebCAMP (Web-based Center Administrative Management Program) software system to support our internal funding programs, as do many other hubs funded through the NIH’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program.
WebCAMP will be used to manage grant submissions, review processes, and longitudinal progress report tracking in one system and will provide easier access for all users.
WebCAMP was originally developed through funding from the National Center for Research Resources and is currently supported and enhanced by the Weill Cornell Medicine CTSC in collaboration with the national network of CTSA hubs that use the software.
