Transformation of the Institution
UC Denver will create the CCTSI as the integrated and interdisciplinary statewide academic home for clinical and translational sciences.
Transformation of the Clinical and Translational Scientist
The CCTSI will enhance, integrate, and transform training of translational scientists to develop a new generation of investigators with interdisciplinary and collaborative skills and a team approach to scientific investigation. Training programs will reach out to trainees of all disciplines (medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, public health, engineering, basic and behavioral sciences, etc.), providing outstanding mentoring and career development guidance.
Transformation of Discovery Translational Research
The CCTSI will transform discovery translational research (bench-to-bedside research) by providing new resources and infrastructure, integrating current and developing innovative research tools, catalyzing new interdisciplinary research programs, and removing barriers to efficiency.
Transformation of Community Translational Research and Practice
The CCTSI will transform community and population-based research by enhancing and integrating Community-Based Participatory Research into programs that engage community participation and by developing novel methodologies and informatics platforms for translation of scientific discoveries into clinical practice.
