The CTSC is the Cleveland-based part of a national consortium of research institutions working together to facilitate and transform scientific study relating to human health. With a shared goal of improved health, a broad scientific community - in the basic and behavioral sciences, in health advocacy, and in clinical practice - comes together with an engaged public community to leverage ideas and resources into results. This is a new model through which we are growing the research enterprise, developing practitioners and core competencies in the discipline of clinical and translational science, and putting research findings to use in clinical practice.
The CTSC encourages and enables collaborative participation in this research enterprise through communications, education, advocacy, clinical practice, shared ideas and resources, and pilot funding. Northeast Ohio researchers are seeing expedited success in their studies, and patients are benefiting, as a result.
