Clinical & Translational Science Collaboration Core
The ClinTECH Center leverages the strong scientific environment of our region with the clinical strengths of our health system partners to build an ecosystem that transcends traditional departmental and organizational boundaries and encourages collaborative problem-solving with communities and across historically siloed disciplines such as the biological, physical, computational, business, and engineering sciences. Basic researchers looking to bring innovative ideas to the clinic are welcome.
