Our Mission to the CTSA Program
The Institute of Translational Health Sciences is dedicated to speeding science to clinic practice for the benefit of patients and communities throughout Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho (WWAMI), and beyond. ITHS promotes this translation of scientific discovery to practice by fostering innovative research, cultivating multi-disciplinary research partnerships, and ensuring a pipeline of next generation researchers through robust educational and career development programs. In the past, individual groups looked at health issues only from their perspective. We now realize that partnerships between scientists, clinicians, and communities are needed to tackle complex health issues. The ITHS is a partnership between the University of Washington, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and Seattle Children’s. We also collaborate with regional institutions, providers, and community organizations across the five-state WWAMI region.
