Penn State CTSI

The most important challenge facing academic medical centers is translating new research findings into tangible health benefits that improve lives. Penn State has created the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) to serve as an independent but highly integrated academic engine for clinical and translational science.

The CTSI builds on the strong tradition and rich experience of collaborative interdisciplinary thinking that exists at Penn State and brings this wide breadth of academic endeavor—including traditional biomedical activities, social sciences, arts, communications, economics, education, engineering, ethics, and health care delivery and policy—to bear on health.

The long-range goal of the CTSI is to develop, implement and make available to the community at large new methods to predict, prevent and effectively treat human disease.
