Health research has always been incredibly important, but maybe never more important than right now.
Every solution for every disease, whether common or rare, anticipated or unanticipated, since the beginning of time, has come as a result of the effort of medical scientists – typically translational scientists – who form ideas in their research labs, test them, and then “translate” them for use in people who are sick. However with the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic, never has the spotlight shone so brightly on translational scientists, who are being counted on to stop and prevent what seems like today, as a seemingly unstoppable illness.
The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) is a partnership among the leading research universities of Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame. Below you can find some of the ways we are working together to help stop this silent killer from taking one more life in Indiana and beyond. If you have additional ideas about ways we can help you, your family, or your community, please contact the appropriate person or group from the following information.
