    Weill Cornell Medicine Clinical & Translational Science Center

    The Weill Cornell Clinical and Translational Science Center is a partnership of renowned institutions mostly located
    on the East Side of New York City that has focused on catalyzing translational research to improve human health over the past
    14 years. Under the leadership of Julianne Imperato-McGinley, MD researchers are collaborating, education programs are
    united and resources and technological tools are efficiently shared and utilized in novel ways to accelerate multi-disciplinary
    trans-institutional team science. The overall vision of the Weill Cornell CTSC is to build upon our effective CTSC
    platform to further extend clinical and translational research across the spectrum of translational science with community
    involvement at all phases. We plan to advance creativity and entrepreneurship, critical elements to foster the translation and
    dissemination of novel discoveries and initiatives. Our CTSC partners each have unique features that bring diversity to multi-institutional
    multi-disciplinary team research leading to novel technology development. Multimodal opportunities for learning
    are planned to add flexibility in the education of translational researchers, allied professionals, and community members. Our
    mission will be further augmented by expanding our informatics structure and technology while we continue to enhance our
    activity as members of the CTSA national consortium concerning nationwide initiatives and best practices, in addition to
    disseminating findings and collaborating across hubs nationally.
