From Diversity, Strength; From Unity, Innovation

The CCTS Partner Network crosses institutional boundaries to improve human health and health care delivery. This innovative partnership provides the foundation for addressing health disparities through collaborative research and training efforts.

Building on some initial relationships from the Deep South Network for Translational Research, we have 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 University and University of South Alabama), integrative genomics (with HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology), advanced magnetic resonance imaging (with Auburn) and substantial experience with participant populations having disparities in clinical outcomes (Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Pennington Biomedical Research Center, University of South Alabama, Tulane University, University of Alabama, Tuskegee University, and UAB).
