CCTS Director Dr. Robert Kimberly Featured in UAB Medicine Magazine

Dr.​ Robert Kimberly, director of the UAB Center for Clinical and Translational Science, is featured in the current issue of UAB Medicine, the magazine for the UAB School of Medicine, in an article called, "Paving the Way for Discovery," written by Tara Hulen. The piece is part of a series on translational science, dubbed "Change Agents: How UAB Delivers on its Discoveries." 

From the article: "'We drive the collaborative culture of discovery and innovation in life science and human health for UAB,” explains Kimberly, who directs the CCTS. “It’s a network; it’s team science. We drive the team.” Sometimes it’s about bringing together investigators with different skills but matching interests, he explains. Or it’s providing them with the research support and resources they need to move a discovery along the translational pipeline. By making research more efficient, the CCTS can help to develop new and more efficient ways of delivering medical care, Kimberly says.​"
