Partner Network

Partner Network

Building on some initial relationships from the Deep South Network for Translational Research (DSNTR), the CCTS has significantly expanded to create new and more formal partnerships with regional institutions for mutual benefit.  Regional partners are working together to facilitate and promote unique opportunities, including drug discovery and development (with UAB, Southern Research, Auburn and South Alabama), integrative genomics (with HudsonAlpha), advanced magnetic resonance imaging (with Auburn) and substantial experience with participant populations having disparities in clinical outcomes (LSU, Mississippi, Pennington, South Alabama, Tulane, Tuscaloosa, Tuskegee and UAB).

Examples of Community Partner Projects
The Wonderful World of Research video, produced by the CCTS-facilitated Community Council, describes the benefits of biomedical research.  

The One Great Community project's latest endeavor is the development of the Community Engagement Institute​​, a half-day training and education institute for local leaders and researchers alike.

Health-oriented neighborhood projects such as the Neighborhood Leaders Health survey have been used to identify the health issues of greatest concern (e.g., lack of sidewalks and parks, diabetes and hypertension). these, to help guide the Community Health Innovation Awards, now in their third year
