Research with Particular Distinctions in Medicine & Genetics

As one of the nation’s top public research universities with particular distinctions in medicine and genetics, Utah Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) prides itself on increasing the visibility, volume, and quality of translational research through fostering multi-disciplinary research, academic research, clinical research, and community-based research. This is made possible with the assistance of the four foundations of discovery, a wide range of scientific services, and support from the National Institutes for Health Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), as well as collaborative partnerships within the State of Utah including Intermountain Health Care, Utah Department of Health (UDOH), VA Salt Lake City Health Care System (VASLCHCS), Comagine Health, and U Health Regional Network.

The CTSI is funded by the NCATS Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program (UL1TR002538). View Cite and Submit for details.
