In the spirit of people being the prerequisite for success a new Clinical and Translational Science Network (CTSciNet) was recently launched by Science and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. It is described as a “career-development Web portal for clinical and translational investigators with an experimental, evolving communications infrastructure”. The portal provides articles and perspectives about training and career-related issues, resources, and partners in clinical and translational science. As it develops, CTSciNet’s online professional network intends to connect clinical and translational science communities worldwide. I like the Forum Primer that provides answers to the Forum’s most frequently asked questions and links back to the original Forum discussions.
