Accelerating Research to Improve Health

The Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI) facilitates clinical and translational research to improve patient and community health. We do this by providing infrastructure, services and training to enable research to be conducted more efficiently, effectively and in new ways. 

To advance our mission, we develop broad coalitions and partnerships at the local, regional and national levels to enable a transformation of the research environment.

By working in partnership with investigators, diverse campus groups, the health system and our network of external partners, we hope to accelerate the delivery of research breakthroughs to benefit human health.
