About Us

The Institute for Translational Sciences (ITS) aims to train a new generation of clinical and translational researchers, engage stakeholders and communities in research, address barriers to clinical and translational research, and advance translational research through team-based approaches. The ITS, established in 2009, is the academic home of UTMB’s Clinical Translational Sciences Award (CTSA), funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). CTSA institutions work together to speed the translation of research discoveries into improved health.
