Our Mission to the CTSA Program
The Center for Translational Medicine (CTM) at UT Southwestern is a collaboration among 7 academic institutions, 5 health care systems, 6 teaching hospitals and the North Texas community. Our mission is to improve health in local and global communities through innovation and education. Over the past 11 years, the CTM catalyzed disruptive innovation and transformed the culture and landscape of our institution and its partners. We have supported more than 1,400 investigators, trained >1,000 members of the translational workforce, and we co-led the formation of the Accrual to Clinical Trials CTSA network. We have established new translational technologies, new methods and processes critical to the translational process at every level and engaged our local communities early on in the design and conduct of clinical research.
