Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences (CCTS) - Funded by the National Center for the Advancement of Translational Science, the Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences (CCTS) facilitates clinical and translational research while translating its discoveries to human health at UAB and partner institutions across the Southeast.  The Informatics Institute collaborates with the CCTS to improve the research application of bioinformatics and clinical research informatics.  These collaborations not only facilitate the scholarship of the biomedical researchers but also serve as opportunities for institute faculty to advance their own scholarship and discover solutions to a wide variety of problem domains.
