What Is the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS)?
The CCTS is the home for clinical and translational science in our institution, the state of Utah, and within the Mountain West Region. It builds on the University of Utah Health Sciences’ strengths in genetics and bioinformatics to translate promising bench science into practices that improve human health.
The center serves as an academic home for clinical and translational research, developing innovative health services for the community and health researchers, and training a new generation of clinical and translational investigators. Four foundations of discovery compose the center: Clinical Trials Support, Population Health, Precision Medicine, and Workforce Development, and these foundations provide support for T1 to T4 research.

With displays of traditional Native American dress and artifacts as reminders of their proud heritage, a group of bright, young students radiated optimism and excitement at the welcome dinner for the Native American Research Internship (NARI), held at the Natural History Museum of Utah. This year, the program is hosting students from 12 tribal nations, 12 states, and 18 universities. While many are newcomers, some have decided to return for their second and even third summers. NARI offers an opportunity for native students to encourage and explore interests in medicine and biomedical research, two fields in which Native Americans are the most underrepresented minority group....
