The overall goals of the Vermont Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) are to:
- Provide an academic home to facilitate innovative multidisciplinary interactions between scientists and clinicians to foster high-quality, safe, efficient, and cost-effective translational research for all conditions.
- Provide resources and services to support and speed the planning and implementation of clinical and translational research across the entire spectrum of research, from individuals to communities.
- Train, mentor, and expand the next generation of multidisciplinary clinical and translational scientists to apply new knowledge, implement best practices, and improve the health and well-being of our citizens and communities.
The Vermont CCTS consists of three major components: (1) An integrated home providing supporting Programs, (2) Units providing services, and (3) Research education, training, and career development activities.
Each Program or Unit has three missions: (1) Support clinical and translational researchers, (2) Support education and career development, and (3) Pursue innovative research specific to its own area.
