The vision of the CCTS is to speed the translation of research into improved human health.  Our mission is to enhance human health by driving scientific discovery and dialogue across the bench, bedside, and community continuum.  We are leading our institution by transforming its research infrastructure – from preclinical research to bench-to-bedside translation to community implementation, by connecting researchers and providing them with access to resources and services, by training the next generation of researchers and research teams, and by making the community our partner in clinical and translational research.    
 
The working “units” of the CCTS support this overall mission in a highly integrative network of relationships.  Success in creating such an environment is dependent upon success in achieving our five strategic priorities: 1) enhancing research infrastructure; 2) promoting investigator education, training and development; 3) accelerating discovery across the T1 interface; 4) expanding value-added partnerships; and 5) building sustainability.
