Advancing discoveries in health care through translational science
The ICTS is funded by the National Institutes of Health under the Clinical and Translational Sciences Award (CTSA) program. Currently, there are a total of 60 CTSA programs funded throughout the United States.
The UC Irvine ICTS functions as a local centerpiece for the national program and is dedicated to accelerating scientific discovery and medical breakthroughs to the bedside. The ICTS is mandated to provide services and support to clinical and translational science in nine key areas:
Each area of support/services is led by established investigators who are recognized authorities in their respective area of research/clinical practice.
Collectively, our goal is simple: To accelerate discoveries from the lab and to translate them into life-altering medical care.
