ACCELERATING SCIENCE. IMPROVING CARE.
The Colorado Clinical & Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI) is the academic home to help transform the clinical and translational research and training efforts at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and affiliated institutions, including Colorado State University. The CCTSI was created in 2008 with funding from the Clinical & Translational Science Award (CTSA) initiative of the National Institutes of Health. Colorado State University joined the CCTSI during the grant renewal in 2013 and continues to be funded through an institutional subaward.
Transform the current clinical and translational research and training efforts of all Schools at CU Denver and affiliated institutions, including CSU, into an innovative, interdisciplinary, integrated, collaborative campus and hospital-wide academic home for clinical and translational sciences, scientists and trainees.
Improve the health of the population of Colorado by speeding the translation of biomedical discoveries into prevention and intervention strategies in the community, and by reducing health disparities.
