integrated Translational Health Research Institute of Virginia

Mission Statement

The integrated Translational Health Research Institute of Virginia (iTHRIV) program is a collaboration of public and private institutions across the Commonwealth of Virginia that brings team science, innovation, and a commitment to train the next generation of clinical and translational researchers. Together, the iTHRIV partners (University of Virginia (Central VA), Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinics (Southwestern VA) and Inova Health Systems (Northern VA)) and our affiliates (Center for Open Science and the Licensing and Ventures Group) are working to support clinical translational research to benefit our diverse rural and urban communities across the state. The mission of iTHRIV is to remove barriers to discovery and optimize the use of data to improve health.
