About the Clinical + Translational Science Institute

The Clinical + Translational Science Institute at Penn State accelerates discoveries to benefit human health.

Established in 2007, Penn State’s Clinical + Translational Science Institute (CTSI) serves as a catalyst for the clinical and translational sciences at the Institution. As a member of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Network (UL1 TR00127), the CTSI provides resources, collaboration opportunities, services, workforce training, education and tools to help translate new research findings into tangible health benefits that improve the lives of those in the Commonwealth and beyond.

Penn State is already a leader in clinical expertise, intellectual aptitude and innovative research. The CTSI serves as the central infrastructure to catalyze discoveries, facilitate collaboration, build interdisciplinary teams, share tools and technologies, provide training and education for the future clinical and translational workforce and funding to actively pursue new discoveries.

The CTSI fosters an environment that allows research discoveries to quickly and efficiently develop into health benefits. This goal is accomplished by providing:

  • consultation services
  • pilot funding
  • workforce development and education
  • research tools and resources
  • networking and collaboration opportunities

CTSI services and resources are available to anyone in the Penn State Community.
