Funding continuation from the National Institutes of Health

Ohio State’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) announced continuation of funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The College of Veterinary Medicine is well-represented within the center.

The CCTS brings together research teams and fosters innovation to translate science more quickly into patient care. In partnership with the College of Veterinary Medicine and other colleges across Ohio State’s campus, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children's Hospital, the CCTS aims to: Draw on the University’s diverse strengths to create an academic home for innovative, team-oriented clinical and translational science. Nurture the career development of highly trained investigators, with an emphasis on innovation and science across disciplines. Build an administrative infrastructure to conduct high-quality, clinical and translational science relevant to communities. Develop a portfolio of outstanding shared resources in support of transformative clinical and translational research.

The CCTS will continue to blend the traditional biomedical research process ─ basic scientific discovery, translated to the bedside, then disseminated into the community ─ with a public health approach. It provides a clinical and translational science infrastructure to provide a range of scientific resources needed to conduct all forms of translational research.
