Directory Category: Shared Resource

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 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).
