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.
Cellular Translational Research Core (CTRC)
Delivers first-class stem cell and molecular biology services, up-to-date information and technical expertise, featuring induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) generation and automated nucleic acid isolation, for increased speed, efficiency, and reproducibility.
The Workforce Development Foundation for Discovery is designed to enhance the development of future faculty members and to reengineer the training of future investigators in each step of clinical research, from the laboratory bench or basic population science research to the bedside and finally to practice in the community. This brings together faculty and trainees from basic science and clinical departments, the graduate and medical schools, academia, health care delivery, and the biopharmaceutical industry.
