Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS)

To speed the translation of research into improved health, the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) is committed to increasing research capacity, accelerating research processes, engaging stakeholders in trusting, productive teams, developing and supporting excellence in the research workforce and providing creative, innovative approaches to major health and health care delivery challenges. The vision of the CCTS is to reduce health disparities and diseases disproportionately represented within the Deep South as we accelerate discovery to improve health. The Center has assembled a robust Partner Network – spanning Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana – to ensure that research and training efforts serve the communities in our region while maximizing collaborative synergies in translational research to advance fundamental and clinical discovery through to application.

Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program

The CCTS and its Partner Network represent one of nearly 60 Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). The national CTSA Consortium comes together by a shared mission to strengthen the clinical and translational research enterprise “to get more treatments to more patients more quickly.” The CTSA Consortium is committed to developing a diverse and knowledgeable translational science workforce; engaging patients and communities in every phase of the translational process; promoting the integration of priority and underserved populations in translational research across the human lifespan; innovating processes to increase the quality and efficiency of translational research, particularly of multisite trials; and advancing the use of cutting-edge informatics.
