Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) Services

The University of Illinois at Chicago’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) is funded by the National Institutes of Health to conduct innovative clinical and translational research and advance these discoveries to better the health of our communities. The CCTS strives to accelerate the translation of scientific discoveries into innovative diagnostics and therapies, disease prevention and improved health care delivery. To accomplish this, the CCTS offers essential services and resources for investigators at all stages of the translational spectrum, including infrastructure support, funding, and a curriculum for clinical-translational research training.  Services offered by the CCTS include biomedical informatics support, biostatistical consulting, recruitment and retention assistance, community engagement, implementation science, and research navigation.

Clinical Research Center (CRC)

The Clinical Research Center (CRC) is one of the services offered through the CCTS and it is committed to providing UIC health investigators, trainees, and support staff a research environment and broad range of services that are conducive to the conduct of high quality, timely and efficient clinical and translational research. The CRC provides a comfortable, safe and effective environment to conduct research involving human subjects. This is achieved by providing the necessary environment, equipment, and personnel to optimize research goals. Investigators may utilize the personnel and facilities at the Clinical Research Center or request research support to occur beyond the walls of the CRC.
