About the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI)
The CRC is one of the service units of the Penn State Clinical and Translational Science Institute. Translating new discoveries into tangible health benefits is a critical challenge facing academic medical centers. The Penn State CTSI serves as an academic home for clinical and translational science by building on the strong tradition of interdisciplinary collaboration at Penn State.
The CTSI brings a wide breadth of academic disciplines — including traditional biosciences, social sciences, engineering, communication, arts, economics, health policy, ethics and education — to bear on health and health care delivery.
In partnership with the Huck Institutes for the Life Sciences, the Social Science Research Institute, patients and communities, the CTSI will foster collaborations that span the continuum of translational research and will provide access to core resources and pilot funding.
- To catalyze interdisciplinary collaboration and novel approaches to predict, prevent, and treat disease.
- To provide investigators across Penn State access to resources that enhance and rigorously evaluate the impact of clinical and translational research.
- To train a new generation of health professionals and investigators that are fluent across diverse disciplines and sensitive to the overarching purpose of health research.
- To effectively share and disseminate data, discoveries, and new knowledge with researchers, health practitioners, other institutions, and the community at large.
