Yale Center for Clinical Investigation

Mission Statement

The YCCI has been to establish a home for the training of the next generation of clinical and translational scientists and to provide a robust infrastructure that promotes innovative and collaborative research directed at improving patient care. Our key goals are to:

Attract talented students and junior faculty members from the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, and Engineering into clinical and translational research careers; imbue them with a spirit of discovery; train them in the use of state-of-the-art research tools; and give them the skills needed to function collaboratively as members of multidisciplinary research teams.
Accelerate the movement of disease-related discoveries into the clinic by providing research teams with pilot grants, access to state-of-the-art research cores, and robust administrative, regulatory, informatics, biostatistics, and subject recruitment support for T1-T4 research.
Strengthen the infrastructure that connects clinical research teams with practitioners, community health clinics, and community stakeholders throughout Connecticut, reaching out in particular to diverse populations including children, women, the elderly, and underserved minorities.
Work actively with other CTSA hubs to share research approaches, expertise, tools, data, and the integration of informatics systems and other key research functions.
